Maurer – Kadarka 1880 2019
Natural dry red wine from the oldest Kadarka vineyard on the planet, one of oldest European vineyards that survived Phylloxera thanks to sandy soils on Noszai Hill in northern Serbia.
140 years old vines with an average yield of just 200gr per plant.
If Unicorn Wine exists and is more than just an urban legend, this should be one of the few.
Fermented in an open vessel and aged for 12 months in old oak barrels.
It smells and tastes like a brisk fall day with raspberry, pomegranate and blood orange.
Hibiscus tea, rhubarb, spice, a hint of aged balsamic and forest floor.
It shows a botrytis affected nose, but bone dry and with vibrant acidity.
Electrifying and exhilarating gastronomic wine, that will be a great companion to duck breast, pheasant, rabbit, veal and vegetarian and vegan dishes;
smoked beetroot, spicy-sweet roasted pumpkin, morels stew, grilled chanterelle.
