Introducing the Érintés range from Szentesi winery, which is blended by winemaker Jozsef Szentesi's daughter Katalin. The wings on the label represent Katalin's belief in angels and the wine blend's origin story, when Katalin took a disastrous 2014 vintage and blended the grapes into a charming and silky estate wine. This delicious blend has gotten better every year and is now an inky-dark coloured wine with beautifully intense blackberry aromas. It's silky-smooth to drink with a mix of strawberries, dried raspberries, spicy anise, tobacco and cassis. Wildly fermented and aged for a year in used oak, the wine's bottled unfiltered and full of flavour.
Pairs beautifully with: Pan-roasted duck, grilled lamb and Mediterranean veg, lasagne or tomato pasta dishes, and BBQ food.
Cheese pairing: Cheddar or mature Brie.
