Elsie

This elegant wine is inspired by Elsie, our beloved and charismatic hunting dog. A special cuvée, Elsie is the calling card of the family winery Heimann on top of the beautiful hills of Szekszárd in southern Hungary.

Grapes

grapes-3

55% Cabernet Franc, 20% Syrah, 16% Kékfrankos and 9% Merlot

Production

The semi-warm summer days gave a slower ripening and aromatic development of the grapes resulting in plenty of freshness and character. The wine was aged in oak barrels for 14 months before bottling to reach complexity and balance. The Ardea seal guarantees no cork taint and is ideal for long-term ageing.

Food Paring

Enjoy with game like deer, moose, wild boar or roasted duck. As well as creamy, gratinated vegetarian dishes at 16-18°C

Curiosa
