Story: ‘Tanyamacska’ is an old term for the guys who used to spend their time – even if they did not have to – in the winery. The main character in the photo (taken in the 1930-s) was mentioned in this name – and he happened to be the common great grandfather of the owner (János Eszterbauer) and the winemaker of Eszterbauer winery (László Pálinkás).
The Kékfrankos made in a typical Szekszárd style shows the excitement of the variety with the richness of fruits and acidity, but at the same time it reflects the mildness of the wine region. The wine has a long finish with a lot of fruit. The body is medium due to the vintage. Firm structure.
