MACSKA Portugieser 2019
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 vintage of 2019 featured cooler weather (following a warm spring) and average precipitation. The high annual heat had a positive impact on ripening
– taste, scent and aromatic notes are quite concentrated in wines from this vintage. The months around the harvest had low volume of rain, long periods of sunshine and cool nights, enabling us the work with grapes that have high levels of acidity.
