This is a spicy and fruity native Hungarian red. Dense and deep plum, strawberry and raspberry dominate the nose of this fragrant Kadarka selection. Beautiful spiciness on the mouth, elegantly focused, with ripe fruits and barrel notes complementing a lingering finish. Unfined/unfiltered.
About the winemaker
It was on the Nagy-Eged hill, Hungary’s tallest peak famous for winemaking, where Marcell’s father purchased 45 hectares in 2000, when the land was mostly still overgrown from disuse during the communist era. Today Marcell runs the family winery, producing high-quality natural wines from these and neighboring lands. Marcell describes his winemaking process as “well thought-out, stable, and slightly romantic,” refusing to use pesticides and making his wines using traditional techniques. He studied viticulture in Hungary and abroad, and worked in Napa and the Rhone Valley.
