Pronunciation: "Bik-ah-vair Superior"
Winemaker: Tibor Gal
Variety/Blend: Kekfrankos, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kadarka and Pinot Noir
An excellent blend of Kekfrankos, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Kadarka and Pinot Noir. Hand harvested grapes that went through 20-30 days cold-soak maceration and 24 months small barrel maturation, followed by a further six months of bottle ageing. This careful handling produced a lively wine with very complex aromas of red fruits and oriental spices. Fiery, well structured wine, with soft tannins. Beautiful harmony.
Goes great with red meat in rich sauce, such as beef bourguignon, roast red meat or game, chicken with garlic, substantial "meaty" fish like salmon or tuna.
Winemaker: Zsirai Sisters
The vines that produced this Furmint were planted in the early 1970s on a red clay, rhyolite tuff and quartz soil in Mad’s Kozephegy hill.
After harvest, the grapes are destemmed and macerated in their must before pressing and letting it spontaneously ferment in barrels.
Spicy on the nose with a touch of saltiness, aniseed and mint that needs to be aired a little to shine. Lively but balanced acidity and long on the palace, this wine is a truly unique and beautifully structured Furmint.
Winemaker: Evelyne and Erhard Heumann
Variety/Blend: 100% Cabernet Franc
Dark bright purple. Red fruits in the nose with some vanilla and pepper. On the palate black berries and cassis plus a hint of dark chocolate. Well integrated acidity and fine texture. Full bodied yet elegant wine with a very long aftertaste. Great potential for further development.
Goes great with: Roast or gilled red meats, duck and goose dishes, venison, red meat in rich sauces, hard cheeses, Christmas dinner.
