Jackfall is the German name for Kisjakabfalva, the small village in Villány that is home to the Jackfall winery. Kékfrankos (Blaufränkisch) is native to Hungary, and is the country's most widely-planted red wine grape. Villány is the warmest region in Hungary, with a sub-mediterranean climate and loess soil with limestone. 6 months aging in 500 L used Hungarian oak (70%) and stainless steel tanks (30%). This wine is medium-bodied, with tons of supple black currant, ripe cherry, and a clean green herbal finish. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. Low sulfites added.
About the winemaker
The Jackfall Winery was founded in 2001 in Villány, in the south of Hungary. It gets its name from the Swabian name for the village of Kisjakabfalva (“Jackfall”), where the winery is located. Currently the winery has 12 hectares, largely in Kisharsány and Nagytófalu, which are both adjacent to the winery. The winery is known for its fuller-bodied, beautifully aromatic, elegant red wines, a testament to the region of Villány and its winemaking culture.
