In the Villany wine region portugieser is a variety that can be found in every cellar. In the ‘Legend of the devilplowed hill’ it is represented by the cat.
We couldn’t live everyday life without it.A thirst-quenchingly fruity, nice and easygoing wine that ‘purrs’ and flatters – a wine that feels good to drink every day!The varietal specific red berries on the nose are rounded off by a combination of sour cherry, plum and sloe on the palate. Its tannins are soft and velvety.
It is a good match with lighter Hungarian dishes, fish for example, and Italian starters and pastas.
The coldest winter and the earliest vintage ever!
We had a real, cold, long-lasting winter with minus degrees. Flowering in late May, good warm summer, with enough wet. The early harvest started on the 17th of August with pinot noir rosé harvest. We harvested mature, healthy and rich grapes, with beautiful colour.
