Cuvée 7 Villány

Villány 2013

A bold blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (60%), Cabernet Franc (25%) and  Merlot (15%). Ruby red and red crimson color. The nose exhibits a bouquet of roses, black forest fruits, dark chocolate, balsamic vinegar, roasted walnut, sandalwood and black pepper. Fragrant, complete and proportionate, the wine displays round tannins and playful sweetness on the palate without being heavy. It will continue to express its potential for a decade.

The Year

Winter and spring of 2013 were wet and cold - with some heavy snow in April - delaying bud break and flowering by weeks. Blooming occurred in nearly ideal, somewhat cold weather. Early-ripening grapes such as Merlot, Portugieser and Pinot Noir did well result in huge amount, spotless quality fruit. Due to the cold front, late-ripening varietals such as Cabernet Franc and Kékfrankos ripened less evenly. Long Indian summer with mild temperatures and sunny days was an important factor in the ripening process of Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. An excellent vintage overall, especially after the dreadful start.
