Decanter Regional Trophy

2015: Cabernet Franc, Villány / 2011

“Deep, layered and highly intense, with an opulent nose of cedar, sour cherry, cassis, blueberry and dark chocolate. Big, bold, seriously rich and similarly complex, the tannins are fine, silky and frame flavors of crushed mulberry, green pepper, mint, tomato leaf, cocoa, lavender and thyme.”

Furmint Medve, Tokaj / 2012 - 93 pont

Full yellow-gold color gives an unfiltered appearance.  Knockout nose combines a hint of apricot, orange zest, medicinal herbs, smoke and flinty, rocky nuances; more about soil than primary fruit.  Silky, mouthfilling and rich but laid-back on the palate, with a powerful spine of rocky minerality and firm lemony acidity giving a wonderfully light touch to the intense, very dry flavors of apple, stone fruits and smoke.  This savory, tactile, extremely long wine really echoes and builds on the very long, gripping back end.  As good a wine as I’ve tasted to date from the hot, dry 2012 vintage.”

Furmint Birsalmás, Tokaj / 2012 - 90 pont

“Bright medium yellow.  Aromas of fresh apricot, orange zest, cinnamon and flinty minerals.  Suave, round, broad and quite dry, with lovely extract and concentration to the smooth stone fruit, smoke, lichee, brown spice and honey flavors.  There’s an element of oiliness buffered by dusty minerality here that contributes to the wine’s density and sophistication of texture.”  Birsalmás used to be this estate’s flagship wine before they introduced the Medve bottling in 2012. “

Cuvee 11, Villány/ 2008 - 98 pont

Cuvee 13, Villány/ 2010 - 90 pont

Aszú Esszencia, Tokaj / 2003 - 93 pont

“Full orange-bronze.  Pours thick.  Distinctly old-style aromas of dried apricot, nut oil, molasses, hazelnut, smoke, toffee, walnut and truffle.  Thick and hugely sweet, with powerful acidity and an orange marmalade quality enlivening the creamy, saline apricot, nut and earth flavors.  Plenty of supersweet honeyed botrytis here.”
