Frittmann wines are made in the southern part of Kunság wine region in a small town called Soltvadkert, in a family winery. The parents and also the grandaparents grew grapes and made wines in Kunság which is the biggest wine region of Hungary. The new generation follows the route: the two youngest sons study oenology
and are now involved in the every day life of the winery. Frittmann Winery started their enterprise with the vineyards inherited from the parents, and increased its size, therefore the family winery has turned into one of the most significant wineries of Hungary. The Frittmanns have 60 hectares of grapes which were planted by themselves, the training system is the tratitional stake-support training and cordon trained vine, and besides they integrate selected, high quality grapes from neighbouring grape growers. In 2007 János Frittann was awarded the presigious Winemaker of the Year – it was the first time that a winemaker from The Great Plain of Hungary received the award, and it was breakthrough for Kunság region, which had a rather negative reputation before. The renewed winery building was completed in the same year, it includes a barrique and a big barrel aging store room, a tasting room and some guest rooms. In 2013 a wineshop and a new, spectatular show case winery was added so that the visitors can learn the process of winemaking and can choose the wines to buy in a nice shop in pleasent atmosphere. The other prestigious award, The Winery of the Year was given to the Frittmans in 2015.
Light straw yellow colour. When smelling, the wine glass is full of peach and pear. The alcohol, the acidity and the body gives a light, still round structure. On the palate yellow fruits and refreshing citrus fruits, and all these components result an easy drinking, lively, light hearted wine.
IRSAI OLIVÉR 2016
Straw yellow colour. Intense nose with flowers, citrus fruits, green apple and peach. The zest of crispy acidity gives the first impression followed by light body low alcohol content. The palate has the same flavours as on the nose. Pleasant finish with green spices and lime. A pronounced, aromatic wine and still great thirst-quenching.
KÉKFRANKOS ROSÉ 2016
Light pink colour. On the nose fresh, ripe cherry, strawberry, rose hip and some spicy notes. On the palate we can taste the same fruity flavours thanks to the structure of the wine, which makes the flavours more pronounced. Light body, low alcohol and crispy acidity add up a fresh, light, easy going wine.
Lighter grenade colour. On the nose sour cherry and spices. On the palate it is fresh and light due to its medium acidity. The alcohol content is low, so as the tannins. The aromas are dominated by spices, and in the background we can discover red berry fruits. A vivid and versatile wine which can easily match with typical Hungarian dishes like stew, paprika chicken or the Hungarian ratatouille.
EZERJÓ FAHORDÓS 2013
Bright yellow colour. On the nose yellow fruits and some honey, butter and vanilla notes. On the palate medium intensity, the aromas follow the nose with apple, pear, mango and some roasted notes which make the wine creamy, however the structure is dominant by the firm, vivid acidity. Long finish with spicy character.
