Last week, when I have visited a winery in Mátra Wine region, I found an eye-catching object on a track’s platform.
Its vivid purple colour was so flash, so I had to look, what is it.
The winery was Szőke Mátyás & Zoltán Winery and Matyi Bácsi said to me, these are pieces (or staves) of a 100 years old barrel! I took pictures of course, because these veterans deserve a little spotlight after such a long service!
And check it out, how wonderful colours can be production of nature! As if these beautiful purple colors would be the thanks from the wine to the barrel, for positive effects, for tannins, nice flavors…
Long break, but my excuse is lot of work and experience with wines, which kept away from my computer and from worldwideweb. I m coming from the most beautiful items, to share with you.
First beauty is a Rose from Mátra Historical Wine Region (Otherwise Mátra is our highest mountain which saves the southern slopes.)
The wine won a silver medal in VinAgora International Wine Festival in June. (The jury is composed of highly experienced individuals who have a long background in judging samples at international wine competitions.) The truth is this bottle didn’t get to me intentionally. I tasted it by coincidence, but the random will be the greatest success, won’t it?
Smell is so deep with raspberry orgy, they had to say me to “hurry” taste because it warm up, but I would have been with fragrance long-long time… I felt as inside my nose became rose colour… as I would sniff its colour. Beautiful! Taste is also deep, and my picture from the bottle is not the best because its colour is more darker! The depth of this rose grabbed me, want to drink it everyday.
