Tihanyi Kék is one of the almost extinct Hungarian varieties Szentesi brought back to life. Plantings are still scarce, but luckily a few enthusiastic young winemakers in the Mátra region (Itt és Most Pince, for example) joined Szentesi in the mission to save our heritage. We will see new examples emerging in the next few years.
Spice explosion. Stunning intensity, it jumps out even from a big Burgundy glass. Pink pepper, tart cherries, cranberries, herbs – a complex nose. An almost Nebbiolo-like structure, loosely knit, but with a creamy texture and a firm finish. Unforced, but does not lack power or flavor. A distinctive, perfumed wine.
