"The" red from Etyek



We have had a passionate relationship ever since we planted the first vines in Etyek in 2001. A variety with a thousand faces that reveals the most of itself at our Pinot Noir Vertical Tasting held in March.

Personal favorite

“Pinot Noir is my favourite both for its aroma and taste. It is a regular at our dinners and gatherings with friends.”

Patrícia Mezei

How it’s created

10 months of maturation in 300 and 228 litre Hungarian and French oak barrels (30% new)

On the nose

sour cherry, red plum and dried cranberry, with nutmeg

On the palate

red fruits are complemented by vanilla and a hint of pink peppercorn

Duck legs
