Description

“The vineyard Nyilasmár has thin, stony and tuff topsoil with strong south slope, these gives fiery, body and the vineyard Nagyfai has brown forest soil,which added rich and pure flavor to this wine. This highly concentrated wine is a blend of Kékfrankos, Pinot Noir, Syrah, Merlot and Cabernet Franc. Nice garnet red color, with aromas of cranberries, ripe cherries and spicy oak. Similar flavors follow on the palate with a medium body and a medium long finish and soft tannins.”
