Long and difficult day at work, so was looking forward to Wine O’clock!
The husband is making some beef stroganoff, so I decided to open a 2016 Kékfrankos made by Koch. Got it from Quaff in Brighton a while back, as we love wines made from this grape. This one is no exception; great nose - floral (pot-pourri), peppery, with cherries and blueberries as well as a touch of pencil shavings, not unlike a Chinon.
Lovely on the palate too; fairly light (maybe medium minus on the body-meter), with lively acidity and chalky tannins. Pleasantly ‘chewy’ mouthfeel. Fruit is definitely on the hedgerow/wild berries/cherries spectrum, and it also has lovely smoky and peppery/spicy notes, which we like. According to the husband this wine is ‘grey’. This synesthesia thing is baffling to me!
This bottle will not last long, I can feel it!
