WINEMAKING:
Gróf Buttler wines are produced by traditional wine-making methods, preserving the values and the exceptional quality of the grapes. Particular attention is paid to the integrity of the grapes during harvest and this approach is upheld throughout the entire winemaking process. After the small-box manual harvest, skipping the pressing and filtering stages, we de-stem the blue grapes, gently crush and ferment them in vast with manual punching down. After the maceration, we draw off the free-run juice and mellow it in excellent quality oak barrels. Apart from minimal amount of sulphur, no other chemicals are added to the wine, even the fermentation process takes place spontaneously, utilizing natural yeast.

TASTING NOTES:
Deep ruby colour! In the nose black berries, spices and chocolate are the dominant flavours. Extremely concentrated and dense wine.
We can really realize the quality after tasting. Manifold spices, gorgeous aroma of intense chocolate, black berries and discreet minerality.  Very long aftertaste. It is still young with superb ageing potential.

BEST TO DRINK AT: 17-18 °C
