Villány 2017

Vibrant red color. Cherries, strawberries, sour cherries, and oriental spices lead the nose with a touch of butter. Fresh vanilla and light tannins dominate the  mouth feel. More than a rose and lighter than a red wine. Bold, sensual and very attractive, with a super light touch of oak. Don`t hesitate to enjoy with ice cubes or as a spritzer! Serve with fresh fruit.

The Year

The fall-winter resting time of the vineyards was very cold in 2017, with just a moderate amount of snow. The above average warm months of March resulted very early bud-break on the Blaufrankisch (Kékfrankos) plantations, followed by the Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Syrah and Cabernet Sauvignon. The pre-blooming period was exremely warm leading to quick blooming and binding in the second two weeks of May. The June-August period was warm and balanced. In July several quick but heavy storms put our perfectly ripening bunches in risk. Due to the steady high temperatures the sugar development of the berries was quicker than usual, only slowing down by early August. The early fall colder nights came just in time helping to build acidity and aromas. The harvest started with the Rose bases as usual, followed by a cold and dry September. Ripening slowed down a bit while we gained more acidity and wonderful aromas! Luckily, October rewarded us with awesome warm weather to finish the harvest with the big reds, Cabernet Sauvignon closing the cellar door. The conclusion? Lean and elegant wines, lively colors, vibrant acidity, moderate alcohol, balance over body.
