Highly aromatic nose of sweet cherry and fresh strawberry with an almost candied like scent. Ripe red currants with sweet spices and orange peel, all tied together with floral aromas of roses, lilies and violets. A spicy palate of sweet and sour cherries, with fresh strawberries, slowly fading into cranberry and sweet currants on the long, lingering finish.
The most natural pairing would be with Hungarian goulash, though it would work very well with venison or mangalitsa charcuterie too. The fragrance of the wine will pair well with aromatic curries such as rogan josh or serve alongside soft cheese such as Camembert with cranberry.

Meet the Winemaker
Attila Winery, Eger - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
Attila Vámos is a winemaker like a few others. He espouses a completely natural approach, one without the use of modern technology, letting the grapes do the talking. He has no employees and relies on the help of his friends and family in the vineyard, but the combination of so much loving care and strict yield controls ensure that each perfectly ripe grape is bursting with the volcanic minerality of the Eger region. The wines are made from pure grape juice, without even the use of a mechanical press, before being naturally vinified for an unadulterated taste of the terroir.
