Silky-smooth Hungarian Kekfrankos with fruity cherry notes.
Markvart Kekfrankos is a medium bodied, dry red wine from Szekszard, Hungary. It’s 100% Kekfrankos.
One of Janos Markvart Jnr’s finest Kekfrankos wines, this medium bodied and silky red wine leads with fresh cherries and light, rustic wood notes. The acidity is tight and fresh, complementing the fruity palate and leaving a moreish finish. The wine is softened in large, used barrels prior to bottling. Kekfrankos may be central and eastern Europe’s most-planted black grape variety but to master it takes a talented winemaker like Markvart and idyllic terroir like the rolling hills of Szekszard.
You’ll like this if you like… Chianti, Alto Adige wines or fuller bodied Pinot Noir.
Pairs beautifully with: Pork sausages, grilled meat and fries, roast lamb and trimmings, jacket spud topped with cheesy beans, or Italian food, especially lasagne.
Cheese pairing: Cheese on toast.
