Hemina Red 2020

Owing to the dominancy of merlot, the wine has silky tannins, while the notes of cabernet franc ensure the structure for the wine. Due to the short period of aging in used Hungarian wooden barrels, the leading aromas are driven by the fruitiness but not from the barriques. The alcohol content is balanced with the richness and the body, emphasizing the notes of black berries both on the nose and the palate. It is a delicate and elegant Bordeaux-style blend from Pannonhalma.

The grape varieties were harvested separately. After being destemmed and selected by the optical sorting machine, the grapes were cold-macerated in 60 hl chilled stainless steel tanks and then fermented under controlled conditions. The fermented wine has been aged for a short time, only for 8 months in used Hungarian wooden barrels. During that time, the malo-lactic fermentation has been completed. Environmentally friendly handpicking practices were used to harvest the grapes.
