In Hungary when we talk about a winery being small, we really mean small—which might be hard to understand for those who have visited wineries in bigger countries. Balázs Havas and László Tímár, best friends since childhood, started this winery in 2008 with one hectare of land (about two acres). Since then they have not acquired any more land, they prefer to purchase grapes for some of their wines, such as this one. It is rare to find a wine made from the Blauburger grape alone, since this variety is mostly used as an addition to blends, for the purpose of deepening the color of the finished wine. In Eger, nobody owns enough vineyards of Blauburger to make single-varietal wines from it. So, the only way to produce a 100 percent Blauburger is to source it from the very few grape growers who still have it. This wine is made from hand-picked and hand-selected berries, which were sourced from two vineyards: Ferenc-hegy and Rádé. The wine was fermented in stainless steel tanks at a low temperature (22 celsius) for four weeks, and then had a short period of aging in tanks before bottling. This wine is a bomb of freshness and fruit, with aromas of cherry candy, blackberry juice, and sour cherry yoghurt. The winemaker once confessed to us that he even likes to add a little soda water to it and enjoy it chilled during the summer months.
