This wine is made in Villany, in the south-west of Hungary which is now the leading red-wine region of Hungary. The terroir as comparable to no other European or non-European wine region as it has both continental and oceanic influence. In regards to the soil it is calcareous, mineral loess with a uniquely high magnesium content, which is responsible for a fine, animating bitterness in the Villány wines. The wines are farmed biodynamically are made with the minimum of interventions and bottled with only a judicious sulfur addition. 

The 2012 Kefrankos is Blaufrankish (the Austrian variety) and is packed full of flavour and expression. Think ripe but herbal Cab Franc and you are 90% of the way there. Dark, taut with structured tannins that have been softened with 5 years in bottle this is a textured, savoury red that still has vibrancy and juicy dark fruit notes.
