Gróf Buttler Winery
The Gróf Buttler Winery was founded in Eger in 1999. Our oenological phylisophy is making perfect wine in keeping with the features of the land and with the least possible intervention. Today we grow vine on 36 hectares of land and our wine is exclusively made from the grapes harvested on our own cultivated vineyards. We have two vineyards in the Eger region, on Szarkás hill and on Nagy-Eged hill.
Nagy-Eged hill, a special territory regarding its location and its soil composition, is a true Grand Cru terroir. The plantations extend up to 501 metres above sea level, making them the highest vine plantations in Hungary. Its complete southern exposure, the 20-30% gradient of the slopes, the particularly gritty, limestone-based soil as well as the continuous air flow all contribute to the development of a special microclimate.
By selecting first-class vine species and the best quality plantations and by making wine using traditional methods that preserve natural qualities, we guarantee that our wines, with their natural, innate beauty, offer the unique, incomparable experience of the terroir.
Egri Kadarka superior 2013
Extremely intense and rich on the nose, in which we meet the character of botrytis (as Tokaji Aszú or Szamorodni). Rich in sweet spices, sweet, fully ripe red and forest fruits. Concentrated, deep, complex, full bodied wine, where the crisp acids give liveliness. Has a long ageing potential.
Syrah Grand Selection 2013
Very deep, almost black colour. This is a full bodied, elegant wine. Very concentrated, complex on the nose and on the palate: red and black berries (black current, black cherry, dried plum) with the barrel aromas (mediterranean herbs, chocolate, cocoa bean, vanilla, nuts) and moderate minerality. Nice acids, ripe tannins, long aftertaste. Still very young, with long aging potential.
