This rich and complex Cabernet Franc from Villány (Hungary’s southernmost region) single- handedly explains why critics have called Hungary the “new home” of Cabernet Franc. Villány's soil is mostly loess with limestone. The wine was aged in old 500 L Hungarian barrels for 12 months. Medium-bodied, with a delicious core of red currant, cherry, green peppercorn, floral and licorice notes that glide through the lengthy finish. Spontaneous fermentation with native yeasts. Low sulfites added.
About the winemaker
The Jackfall Winery was founded in 2001 in Villány, in the south of Hungary. It gets its name from the Swabian name for the village of Kisjakabfalva (“Jackfall”), where the winery is located. Currently the winery has 12 hectares, largely in Kisharsány and Nagytófalu, which are both adjacent to the winery. The winery is known for its fuller-bodied, beautifully aromatic, elegant red wines, a testament to the region of Villány and its winemaking culture.
