Red wine & chocolate cake by Tűzkő Estate
Quick and easy dessert recipe
Tűzkő Estate has recently renewed its labels, and as a consequence the new labels finally reflect the character of the estate: history, tradition, quality, elegance, passion. We wrote about the renewal of the Selection / Rarity and Icon line recently, and by now the Classic line has been redesigned as well. Tűzkő Kékfrankos 2020 is the protagonist of this easy-to-make recipe – a stainless steel fermented and aged fruity, easy going red wine.
Tűzkő Classic Kékfrankos 2020
The grapes come from Mőcsény vineyard in the hilly Tolna wine region, 100% Kékfrankos (aka Blaufrankisch), fermented and aged in stainless steel.
“Ruby red in the glass, the nose is characterized by notes of cherries, red fruit and pink pepper accompanied by delicate spicy hints of hot pepper. A vibrant palate delivers refined tannins with good freshness and an excellent finish. Ideal to pair with typical Hungarian dishes with paprika, and meat based first courses or entrees.”
