A beauty from Eger: Kisfiam Cuvée 2011 from Bukolyi Family Estate.
Winemaker is the young Marcell Bukolyi, a purposful personality, who makes natural wines, on the best vineyards of Eger wine region. His father László Bukolyi was also a key member of the region’s wine life. They have a nice family estate, there are no huge quantities, just the suitable for the high quality.
I was lucky because Marcell said only a few bottle left of this vintage. After I tasted the wine, I read a recommendation – which was published in 2012 – and I found that it went through many changes over two years. Perfect tannin structure, nice eger style acids, scent – as the taste also – spicy and rich fruity. Maybe the reason why it was overwhelming for me, is that at summertime I wish fruity and a little bit sweet flavors. It gave me this wealth, with pruriency, temtation, and I am curious about the 2013 vintage, which is currently on the shelfs.
Varieties: Kékfrankos, Merlot, Cabernet Franc
Oh and Kisfiam means “My little son”
A pleasant opening of a foggy and unloved month is a fiery Merlot, Cabernet franc and Syrah blend. I got it as a present from a nice friend, and my father’s nameday was the appropriate time to open.
This red mystery takes us to a world full of autumn colors, spicy fragrances. Orsolya Winery from Eger wine region (Ostoros) produces wine in small batches and high quality. When I smell it is nice and hopeful, red aromas with liqueur, and in the tasting moment reminds me varied spicy and exciting red fruit flavours. The second sip opens up a new dimension with blackcurrant and caraway. I wonder what would it show one or two years later.
