Pretty Kékfrankos: Gobri 2018

Such an interesting Kékfrankos (Blaufrankisch) from Gobri, this promising new producer in Mátra.

Pale color, rose hip aromas and crisp acidity are common features in Hungarian Blaufrankisch (must be a clone thing, it’s still rare to find Austrian clones in Hungary), but this also exhibits a sweet apricot jam note which rarely can be found in red wines. Smooth and hardly medium-bodied, feels light, but has a surprisingly persistent flavor. A graceful, feminin wine with lots of personality and great drinkability, highly recommended.

Rating: good to very good, 86 points.
