Top wineries at Gourmet Festival

What to taste
Basically everything, for example visit the above mentioned winery stands. If you haven’t tasted Kreinbacher Rosé Brut yet, do it before it is gone – they still have more fans than bottles. And we are sure that Kreinbacher Estate will come out with something new.
The very first rosé sparkling made by Kreinbacher Estate is mainly Pinot Noir: this grape accounts for 92% of the blend. After the selection of base wines from Pinot Noir and Furmint from Somló (5%), they completed the blend with 3% red wine made of Kékfrankos (rosé d’assemblage) and then aged the bottles for 15 months. 10 g/l dosage is given at the end.
The new Rosé Brut is fresh and intensely fruity, expresses the refined character of Pinot Noir. “Bright peach-blossom colour. The nose is clear and full of fruits: pomegranate, strawberry, red cherries, some grapefruit and violet. Firm and precise structure with refreshing citrus aromas like grapefruit and lime, red-currant, strawberry. Despite its distinct acidity, this Rosé is easy to drink, quite rich and pleases the palate with a creamy mousse. Crystal clear wine with a nice finish. It’s all about freshness, for those who are attracted to spontaneity.”
