Szent Donát Estate Kékfrankos

The Szent Donát Winery was named for St. Donat, the patron saint of the Csopak vineyards, who is believed to protect the vineyards against summer storms and hail. Donát was a 2nd century legionary in the Roman army, which protected the borders of Pannonia (today’s Western Hungary). The legend says that his unit was trapped during a battle, and were only able to escape after Donat’s prayers caused a heavy storm to interrupt the battle. Around this time, veteran legionaries began planting vineyards in Csopak—where hail damage is very rare. This 100 percent Kékfrankos is produced only in exceptional vintages, and only from the grapes which are planted right around Szent Donát’s cellar—which has an idyllic location in the town of Csopak, on the southern-facing slopes of the Szitahegy hill. The view of the lake below is impressive, and the cellar is surrounded by grape vines. Szent Donát produces many outstanding wines, and this is one of its highest-ranked. The grapes are fermented with their natural yeast, and after some barrel ageing, the wine is bottled unfiltered. This is a really elegant wine, with complex and spicy aromas of Szechuan pepper, ripe cherries, chocolate, allspice, and violets. It has a refined velvet-like texture, smooth tannins, and the trademark Kékfrankos fine cherry-like acidity. This wine is fresh, juicy, and layered, while also being complex and light. This wine represents what Central European wines are at heart—unabashedly crisp, spicy, and full of cherry flavors. Try it with duck or roasted chicken.
