2018 Heimann & Fiai Kadarka, Szekszárd, Hungary

$24

Ripe and juicy blue fruit aromas give way to purple floral notes, black peppercorn, and thyme. Best enjoyed with a slight chill on a park blanket watching the sunset. 

Heimann farms roughly 23 hectares spread over the Baranya, Porkoláb and Iván Valleys in addition to some rare hillside plantings on Batti. The soil is overwhelmingly Loess in Szekszárd, but you can also find Terra Rosa (iron rich soil also dominant in Istria, Croatia) if you get deep enough. If you’re approaching the appellation from the Great Plain to the East, you first hit the River Danube and then the first hills are Szekszárd. It’s a fairly dramatic change in the landscape and an obvious place for multiple exposures. The Heimann family continues to narrow down what, where and how with Kadarka. A grape that once covered over 60,000 hectares in Hungary was less than 400 hectares post Phylloxera and Communism.
