Benedek Pinot Noir 2017
Péter Benedek is a third generation winemaker crafting small-batch, traditional wines in the highland wine region of Mátra in Hungary. Mátra is a continental climate region, with brown forest clay soils mixed with volcanic basalt, rhyolite and bentonite. The bright-red Pinot Noir is spicy and fruity, with flavors of ripe cranberries, red strawberries, and sour cherries. Pair with Lasagna, duck breast, summer grilled vegetables.
This Hungarian Pinot Noir has aromas of cherry cola, cinnamon and red raspberry. In the mouth, there are smooth tannins and flavors of ripe strawberry and sour cherry. There is pleasant acidity on the finish.
