Kreinbacher Estate's flagship still wine, this elegant single-vineyard Syrah is an exceptional vintage inspired by the powerful reds of the Rhône Valley. The grapes were hand-harvested from the stony terraces of the southern side of Somló Hill, giving it an intense mineral character.
Deep pomegranate colour. An intense fruity aroma of blackcurrant and black cherries, accompanied by notes of dark chocolate and a hint of smoke. 16-months of oak barrel ageing has tamed Syrah’s fierceness, resulting in an elegant yet dynamic wine. Silky smooth on the palate with well-integrated tannins, the fruit flavours are rounded out by black pepper tones typical to this variety and barrel spices. There is plenty of substance here, culminating in a zesty, long-lived finish.
Serve with traditional Hungarian favourites like goulash soup or lamb stew, or semi-hard cheese such as Gruyère or a traditional Baracskai. If you are looking for a lighter vegetable meal then try it with a mushroom casserole.
