TASTE
A bright, immediate aroma of ripe berry fruit, white pepper and rosehip leads to a medium-bodied, vibrant palate. The oak influence is super- subtle, complementing the natural spice and smoke notes of the grape variety.

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 the Makár vineyard in Siklós: a clay-limestone and loess site at 280 metres elevation, with a south-west exposure. The grapes were hand-picked on September 11th.

WINERY
After manual cluster and berry selection, the grapes cool-macerated for three days, then fermented in stainless steel tanks. The wine was then aged for thirteen months in French oak barriques, with twenty-three percent new wood.
