Szent Donát Estate Red Blend

While Szent Donát produces mostly white wines, it also has some interesting reds. This is one of the winery’s newest red wines. Tramontana is the name of a legendary sail boat (pictured on the label), with more than 110 years of history. The boat was only the second sailing boat ever built for Lake Balaton. The owners of Szent Donát, the Kovács family, wanted to help keep this legendary boat in good shape, so they initially created this wine as a fundraiser, with the proceeds going to restoring and maintaining the boat. But they ended up liking this wine so much that they plan to continue to produce the blend in coming vintages. This is a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot, organically farmed, from the Tihany peninsula’s Ráta vineyard. Tihany is Lake Balaton’s only peninsula, and it is also the lake’s premium red winemaking area, due to its warmer weather from the boosting effect of the surrounding water on three sides. It was fermented in open vats, hand-macerated, aged for 10 months in used French barrels, and bottles unfiltered and unfined. This wine is juicy, fruity, medium-bodied, and extremely easy to drink. Enjoy it with grilled meat.
