Kékfrankos Alte Reben 2015

A powerful expression of Kékfrankos

The mature Kékfrankos vineyard of Baranya Valley yielded a vibrant, lively wine, that we aged for 18 months in big Hungarian oak barrels. With its lightness this wine is an excercise in style for a Szekszárd Kékfrankos, where elegance and fruit dominate.
