Orsolya Pince – Kékfrankos 2006

Another wine out of the 2006 vintage of Orsolya, only this time a red one.

I forgot to post this article last week, kinda got busy with all sorts of stuff, so here is my delayed post of the Kékfrankos (blaufränkisch) 2006.

As stated in my previous post of the 2006 vintage wines I ”rushed” to open the wines of that year because there is a chance they might already be bad. Well not this bad boy ! I think it’s the perfect year for this wine.

You have to decant the wine and let it stand for at least 10 to 20 minutes. It gradually became better after 10 minutes. Be also careful if you open one of these bottles because there is some ground/residue in it already, just like most French wines.

The wine was the first vintage of the Görbesoros vineyard which they planted in 2003. The wine was ages in 50 percent new and 50 percent used oak barrels.

It had a fruity nose with pleasant hints of oak barrel. Color is dark ruby and the tannins are medium intensive. There is some spice in the flavors with again the oak, the flavor is somehow complex.

I think the wine is ready to drink and should be drunk this year or next year.
