    A fine entry-level example of this indigenous grape variety. An elegant and fruity wine, with distinctive sour cherry aromas and flavour.

    Fermented in stainless steel, with a small proportion going into Hungarian oak for 6 months.

    What the critics say:

    For me, Takler’s wines show bright fruit and charming personality, with elegance, velvety structure and balance. I was particularly impressed with the Kékfrankos, as it represents great value

  • Details:

    A complex, full-bodied wine made from a grape variety that is becoming more and more well known for its exemplary vinification in Southern Hungary.

    All the more impressive for being 100% Cabernet Franc, this wine is a firm favourite among wine educators. Aged for 12 months in second-fill oak barrels. Takler’s Cabernet Franc will please the most ardent of wine enthusiasts.

    Voted Best Red Wine at ‘Pannon Wine Challenge, 2011’ (Judging Panel: Caroline Gilby MW, Isabelle Legeron MW and Matt Kramer); this modern, ultra-high quality take on what used to be known as “Bull’s Blood” has proven incredibly popular at our tastings, often being mistaken for a fine Bordeaux.

    A classic Hungarian blend of indigenous Kékfrankos with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Deep ruby in colour, creamy-textured, rich, round and full-bodied. Perfect for drinking now, or can be laid down for another few years.

    The local Kékfrankos is Takler’s favourite grape and this reserve wine has been hand-picked from selected sites among the family’s own vineyards. It was made using only the ripest grapes at yields as low as 1.5kg per vine and was matured in new Hungarian oak for 16 months.

    It won top red wine in 2008 at Hungary’s most highly regarded wine competition, the Pannon Bormustra.

    What the critics say:

    16 months in oak, spicy, soft-fruit nose//big structure with firm tannins and a long, austere but elegant finish. 17/20
