Description

After a hint of paprika and other spices, the intense sour cherry aroma is the first impression of the wine. Vivid, pleasant acidity, rounded, refined tannins, surprisingly soft texture – especially knowing the age of the wine. After the first sip it proves to be a well made, decent wine to drink. Medium body, a little masculine bitterness.Then, after another sip and breathing some walnut appears – thus we have to start tasting again… It is a nice, easy drinking wine indeed.An example where Kadarka shows its charming face.
