What a pleasure to tell you this good news, that a red wine from Villány got a gold medal on Decanter World Wine Award! Exactly 2009 Sauska ‘Cuvee 5’ won the international trophy for best Red Bordeaux varietal over £15.
We already posted about Sauska winery earlier, about what an elegant style wines they have, and I am so glad that they were rewarded on international platform also! I hope that the beauties of this wine region will be more attention from now.
Let we see some info about the champion.
"A blend of Merlot (45%), Cabernet Sauvignon (35%) and Cabernet Franc
(20%). Deep ruby color. Fresh red and black currants, violets, good milk
chocolate and cocoa powder in the nose.On the palate, the 2009 Cuvee 5
expresses wonderful concentration of red forest fruit which has a subtle
way of lingering into a long lasting finish." (sauska.hu)
