Heimann SXRD

$24.27

Originally from Swabia, the Heimann family has called Szekszárd home since 1758. Grape growers for generations, Zoltán Heimann and his wife Ágnes reestablished their wine estate after the fall of communism in Hungary. They are today joined at the winery by their son Zoltán Jr, who studied winemaking in Germany, France and Italy. The family’s 25 hectares of vineyards are spread across the Baranya, Porkoláb and Iván Valleys in addition to some hillside plantings on Batti. Primarily planted to Kékfrankos, the vines were converted to organic farming in 2019. All of the wines are fermented using natural yeasts and minimal additions of sulphur.

The Heimann SXRD is made from a blend of Merlot, Kékfrankos and Portugieser. While most wine drinkers won’t be familiar with either Kékfrankos or Portugieser, this red wine has a friendly approachability to it similar to Californian red blends. Bright ruby red in color, on the nose there are fresh aromas of black cherries, blackberries, dark chocolate and allspice. The palate is medium bodied with plush blackfruit flavors and smooth tannins. On the finish it is fruit forward and dry.
