2014 Attila Gere Portugieser Villány

SKU #1216136

The Southern Hungarian town of Villány has featured a grape-growing and wine culture that pre-dates the Roman empire. This culture was reinvigorated after the fall of communism, and Attila Gere founded his label in the 1990s as the seventh generation winemaker in his family. Portugieser is a specialty of the village, having been brought by German settlers after the occupation of the Ottoman Empire. The Atilla Gere is fermented using natural yeasts in stainless steel. Then wine is then aged in 5000 liter barrels for at least four months. A lighter style of red, this an aromatic wine that can be served with a slight chill.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
