Kreinbacher Estate launched their méthod traditionelle sparkling wines from the precious terroir of volcanic Somló mountain, and they became the favourite of Hungarian sparkling lovers quicker than a wink. National and international awards abound, the latest great success is the Platinum award (Best Hungarian Sparkling) of Decanter World Wine Award won by their Kreinbacher Brut Classic.
Pinot with a touch of Furmint and Kékfrankos
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.”
The new Kreinbacher Rose Brut is available at Bortársaság shops and webshop, and at the estate.
