Wines from the Winery
Cabernet Sauvignon rozé 2017

Cabernet Sauvignon rozé 2017

In the glass with an intensive salmon shimmering, it is opulent and fruity on the nose with ripe notes of papaya and hibiscus. Full-bodied and viscous on the palate, at the same time dry in its style, supported by a fine bitterness and a lively acidity with a phenolic character, it is a perfect companion to more substantial dishes to add a little pep and spice to it.

Kékfrankos Rozé 2017

Kékfrankos Rozé 2017

On nose the elegant exotic fruity fragrances are dominating. On palate the taste notes are citrus fruits: grapefruit, mango, pomelo with fine structure of acidity. The richer alcohol and the higher extract content will retain the freshness of rosé.

A worthy follow-up of the “world hit” 2011 Görögszó and from a warm vintage. This vineyard plays a very important role in the Dúzsis’ lives: this special Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc blend is only made in exceptional vintages after the meticulous selection of clusters and barrels. 2012 was such a year when a rich, dense, concentrated wine with sour cherry, capsicum and paprika spice notes was born.
