It is a good match with lighter Hungarian and international cuisine like tapas plates, 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.
