Kadarka 2017

Ultra light and super sexy

In the past 25 years we’ve put a great effort in the variety Kadarka. We looked up 80-100 year old vineyards for the best vines. In collaboration with the Pécs Research Institute we’ve started a new clonal selection process. For years, we’ve payed attention to their yield: Which one has thicker skins? Which ones are coloring more homogenously? Which ones bear the typical Kadarka spices? On the other hand, which ones are atypical? Which ones can be kept on the vines for a week longer?

Having discovered several slight differences between the Kadarka clones, we’ve planted seven of them on our own property. We’ve also made the new clones available for free to our fellow colleagues, all over the country.

Grown on the löss-covered hills of Szekszárd, the variety kadarka shows its uniquely spicy and fruity character, fine acidity. We aim to preserve and expose this elegant raciness by aging the wine for 5 months in big wooden barrels.
