Situated in the picturesque region of Tokaji-Hegyalja in north-eastern Hungary these vineyards were first planted by Count Ferenc Dobó in 1576, then in 1737 was classified as Grand Cru by Royal Decree. With its sister vineyard Pajzos the Chateau shares winemaking facilities & the famous Rákóczi Cellars at the Sárospatak Castle, the best preserved Renaissance castle in Hungary. The vineyard has a south/southwest aspect & is close to the Bodrog river.The soil is a rich volcanic rhyolite containing crystalline fragments that foster wines with a firm character. Furmint is Hungary's most important white wine grape.
Citrus & lime aromas with lively acidity. A deep & confident wine, retaining fruitiness & minerality. Ages very well, it's great for beefing up the cellar with something reliable.
A celebration of Mendoza - the colour, culture and flavour and a celebration of friendship. A really pure expression of Malbec, bright red & juicy, rich chocolate flavours with a lick of oak to round out the edges. Muy, muy fantasticó – richly bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen.
A fresh wine with a lovely hue, bursting with aromas of ripe guava, pineapple, kiwi, green apple and a hint of strawberry, ending with a well-balanced acidity and a lingering finish.
Deep ruby red. A rich, expressive bouquet with notes of red-berried fruit, blackberry and blackcurrant with highlights of oak. The palate is rounded, ample and flavourful, displaying remarkable freshness. The harmonious balance of the tannins, which imparts fine aromatic length with a predominantly fruity back-of-palate, is to be savoured. One of the great achievements of the 2017 vintage, a very fine wine that stands out by virtue of its freshness and vibrancy.
Freshly picked and fermented Frappato grapes are blended with ultra-ripe Nero d'Avola that have dried on the vine to provide a delightful "Appassimento" style red - rich, savoury and a real crowd-pleaser.
