This vineyard-selection kékfrankos is a medium-bodied dry red wine with a deep ruby red colour. It presents a lighter side of the grape variety, while showcasing the best of the unique Eger terroir. Toasty notes and barrel-spices in the nose, followed by a palate of sour cherry and cinnamon aromas. Vibrating acids and gentle tannins make this a harmonious and elegant wine. A long finish of sour-cherry and blueberry complemented by hints of star anise.
