Siller wines are an integral part of Hungarian wine culture. Centuries ago, grape growers made this easy-to-drink, everyday wine from their left over red wine. Our South Balaton Siller follows the Swabian and Serbian traditions, setting Kékfrankos as the main character. A siller is neither red nor rosé, but something wonderfully in between. Berries and bunches from organic cultivation are soaked for three days in a cold environment produce a striking, deep pink colour and bright fruitiness on the tongue and nose. Behind the sweet overtones of red and black currants, cherries and raspberries, the Kékfrankos hits the palate with a mixture of red and black pepper spiciness. With a medium to long finish and incredibly smooth texture, a final touch of saltiness heightens the piquancy of the Kékfrankos and makes it a summer
favourite. In the kitchen, it serves as a versatile accompaniment to soft cheeses,
sushi, duck roasts, Hungarian Mangalica ham or traditional Balaton fish soup. Spontaneously fermented, matured on fine yeast lees for six months, and bottled unfiltered.
