Dúzsi Tamás Estate Wine Cuvée – Ó Vörös Birtokbor 2012 (Szekszárd)
This cuvée is a privileged gem of the Duzsi winery, its predecessor was their first wine (Kékfrankos- Merlot cuvée in 1994).
Later, their vintage 2003 won the best value for money in the Hungarian wine market on the “Master of Wine” competition.
Vintage 2004 was awarded a silver medal in Mindus Vini 2008.
Varietes: Kékfrankos, cabernet sauvignon, cabernet franc, merlot, and pinot noir
Colour: Opaque ruby red.
Nose: Fruity aromas of black berries, dark chocolate and beetrooty notes appear together with certain spiciness.
Palate: Dry. A medium bodied wine with firm tannins & elegant acidic structure. A certain warmth deriving from the alcohol causes a long finish with ripe hints.
Best with spicy meat dishes, pasta & risotto al rucola or simply pizza with fresh basil. The perfect wine for a neat italian evening.
