Description

Balatonfüred-Csopak wine region is mostly well-known for its white wines. Although reds are quite characteristic here, the most important black grape variety is Kékfrankos as in the whole country. Northern-Balaton’s Kékfrankos are always very elegant, ripe but not tannic driven red wines and Homola’s red wine philosophy fits totally in this style. With its ruby red colour, a mixture of red berry fruits (cherry, sour cherry), earthy flavours paired with an extremely harmonious palate this wine could be fantastic for cold platters.
