Following the phylloxera plague, only 10 Laska vines remained. Winemaker József Szentesi, the renowned re-discoverer of ancient Hungarian varieties, secured Laska from the wine research institute in Pécs and brought it back to life, giving it a home in his estate vineyards in Etyek-Buda. This rare red is rich and round – with "all black" flavors like blackberry, black cherry, and blackcurrant – plus a delicate dash of peppery spice from resting 14 months in neutral oak barrels. Szentesi's Laska deserves pairings that honor its renaissance, like grilled steak, lamb, pork, game meats – or for vegans/vegetarians, grilled portobello mushroom.
