Notes & Pairings

This is a blend between Kékfrankos and Magyarfrankos (cross between Muscat Bouschet and Kékfrankos). The yield control is no more than a 1 kilo per vine. The grapes are hand harvested, one week of skin contact, and left to settle naturally before bottling. It has crazy color and subtle aromatics from the Muscat Bouschet, tons of acidity, and yet has ripeness. A chillable red that’s not carbonic and has the acidity of Kabinett Riesling.
