Producer
Christian Sauska is a Hungarian entrepreneur who, having forged a successful career in the USA, decided in 1999 to establish a winery in his homeland. In 2000 he converted a historic building in Tokaj, formerly known as the Citizens’ Casino, into a production facility and tasting room. This was joined in 2006 by a new winery the other side of Hungary, in Villány. With red varieties grown in the latter region and white grapes in the former, Sauska is able to produce exemplary wines in numerous different styles.

Vineyard
The vines are grown on clay-limestone and brown loam soils at 280 metres elevation, with a south-west exposure. The grapes were hand- picked between September 29 and October 4.

Winery
After manual cluster and berry selection, the grapes cool-macerated for five days, then fermented for a further twenty-five days in stainless steel tanks at 24-28oC with indigenous yeasts. The wine was then aged for nineteen months in sixty-two percent new French oak.

Taste
A spectacular example of pure Cabernet Franc, ripened to (but not beyond) perfection in southern Hungary. Complex, nuanced aromas of raspberry, cassis, fresh leaves and cedar lead to a beautifully balanced palate that is full yet graceful.
