Category-winner wine: Villányi Kékfrankos 2019

A stunningly beautiful, genuine Villány red wine that gives a decidedly characteristic  representation of the kékfrankos grape variety. The wine is aged for 16 months in 225 litre, second filled Hungarian oak barrels, giving it tones of ripe, juicy cherry and sour cherry  combined with the intensive tones of the spices used, for a pleasantly acrid overall sensation. Fiery youth meets full bodied, well balanced firmness in this wine of high extract content, nicely softened tannins and a long finish. The Villányi Kékfrankos 2019 was listed in the 2022 Top 25 wines of the Pannon Wine Region.
