Sagmeister Ernő Kányás 2016 Kadarka

Grapes, as a plant, are much more sensitive to different soil variations than any other fruit. This was already described by Adam Smith (Scottish economist, philosopher) in the XNUMXth century. at the end of the century. Since then, scientists have not been able to decipher the effect of individual rock and soil types on wines. So it is better to focus on what we ourselves feel. Whether we like it or not, whether it's good or not, it's often just a matter of taste and taste. The soil – this time settled on the volcanic rock of Szerémség – produces excellent wines. We can even treat this as a fact. Soils formed from volcanic rocks, andesite, basalt, and rhyolite are particularly suitable for growing grapes. The lava rocks and tuffs of andesite and rhyolite form loamy soils, red erubaceous soils, and stony barren soils, which are generally rich in potassium. Brown forest soils with clay stains were also formed on the volcanic rocks. On the steep volcanic slopes, the rock debris is enriched in the soil, which is why the influence of the parent rock can prevail. The nutrient-rich tailings of tuff rocks formed from volcanic ash are a prime breeding ground. The wine region itself partly belongs only to today's Serbia, its western part extends into Croatia. The major grape-growing areas lie on the plateaus and slopes of the Fruška Gora (Tarcal Mountains). The nearby Danube has a beneficial effect on the plantations. Its main soil types are pararedzina, black soil and brown forest soil, which has settled on a large area of ​​loess rock. The vineyards are located on sloping terrain, on plateaus and on the slopes of Fruška, and the Danube has a favorable influence.

Greek (Irig) are the vineyards of Ernő Sagmeister, near Szerémnyárád (Neradin). An altitude of two to three hundred meters above sea level, with unheard-of stony soil - the vines sometimes really suffer here, along with the farmer. Cold winters and hot summers are typical of a traditional continental climate.

Among the native grape varieties of Szeremség is Portuguese wine, which is often used to make Aszu-type sweet wine or Bermet were also made. Kövidinka, Kunleány, Sérémi Green, Kunbarát, and Honey White were still typical in the wine region - most likely in addition to Furmint. Today, these varieties are only rarely found, we find more Chardonnay, Gray Friend, Italian Riesling, Rhine Riesling and Pinot Noir. Since the grapes grow in a relatively warm area, farmers usually harvest with high sugar levels, which also results in higher alcohol contents.

For years, it has been one of the most exciting bars in the Carpathian Basin. The wine belongs to the thicker grapes, which is due to the combined strength of the soil and the capitals. The excellent acid-to-alcohol ratio and the elegant, spicy, but still primarily mineral character are not found in the bottle by chance. Minimal capital burden, natural cultivation and winemaking. Its aroma is rich and salty, with an almost inky character. A little nutmeg and cayenne pepper accompany its aromatics. It takes a little time for its fragrance to develop, but we don't regret the bigger glass either. It has a great structure, fine acids, and a silky texture. A long and persistent wine in the mouth. It leaves a serious mark on the palate, which is a sign of considerable concentration. He's doing great.
