Infusio Red 2021

INFUSIO has been the name of the wine set aside for special events and feasts at the Archabbey Pannonhalma for centuries. Even today this tradition, reaching back to the Middle Ages, continues to contribute to monastic celebrations. Written records from the beginning of the 18th century record that the Benedictine monks of Pannonhalma divided their wines into three categories: “servant-wine” meant the wine obtained from the manorial deliveries; the “convent-wine” was used at the holy masses and served onto the table of the fathers at the meals while the “infusio” referred to the prime category set aside for festive occasions. This did not designate a certain variety but the best quality wine.

Preparation: After being destemmed, the grapes were fermented in 60 hl stainless steel tanks. The fermentation took place on a temperature of 30-32°C during the first 10 days of the long skin contact. The wine was aged in Hungarian and part American 228-litre-barrels for 18 months.
