FRITTMANN Kunsági Kadarka 2020

Kadarka is a native grape variety often called the 'Hungarian Pinot Noir' due to its similarity in its delicate nature and ability to create terroir-driven red wines.

An attractive light carnet red colour. The intensely fruity nose is packed with youthful, fresh aromas of leafy red berry fruits, cherries, sour cherries and spices. A lively and vibrant character with a spicy palate of red berries complemented by moderate acidity and smooth, gentle tannins, this easy-drinking vintage is the perfect everyday wine.


Food Pairing

The perfect accompaniment to stews, steaks and lamb chops. It also pairs very well with semi-hard cheese like Baracskai or spicy vegetarian dishes dominated by paprika

Frittmann Winery, Kunság - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The multi-generational Frittmann winery is run by brothers János and István, who carry on the family winemaking tradition in the Great Plain in southern Hungary. They have achieved the two most prestigious national wine recognitions, becoming Winemaker of the Year in 2007 and Winery of the Year in 2015. They work with grapes from the highest-quality native varieties to prove that the Kunság region can create remarkable, age-worthy wines, an approach vindicated by their serial successes in international competitions.
