The Fritz Winery is built on centuries old family traditions. The family’s German ancestors settled in the Szekszárd wine region in Southern Hungary in the 18th century. The Fritz family now cultivates 30 hectares of vineyards in an area that has its own mezoclimate and loess soil. Their main grape variety is the Kékfrankos, and their wines have repeatedly won prestigious trophies in Hungarian and international competitions alike.
Category-winner wine: Szekszárdi Bikavér 2012
This red wine was prepared by the blending of Kékfrankos, Kadarka, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon grown in the Szekszárd wine region. The base wines were matured in oak barrels for 12 months and for an additional six months after the coupage. Besides the ripe berry notes characteristic of this year, fine spices, vanilla, cinnamon and clove aromas can be detected in the nose and on the palate.
