- By:Chowaniec & Krajčírovič
- Color:Bright cherry
- Blend:Frankovka Modrá
The wine is clear, bright, with a cherry color. The nose has medium intensity with just ripe blackberries and blueberries with subtle earth and peppery spice notes. It also has a touch of anise, giving it a slight licorice scent. The wine is tight, dry, with very good acidity, medium tannin level, for an all around medium body red wine.
This Frankovka Modrá is great with lamb, pork, beef, game meat with a berry reduction sauce. Even game birds and highly textured fish like king salmon can go well with this wine. It would make a great pairing with Middle Eastern cuisine, such as grilled spiced lamb Kebabs as well. The wine can also stand up to lemon juice and vinaigrettes on accompanying dishes and sides thanks to its acidity.
