Light & Fruity

‘Kadarka-man’ is how Zoltán Heimann Jr is known around town. The son of Ágnes & Zoltán Heimann completed his training in Geisenheim, Montpellier and Udine. He learned modern international techniques, and got to know many grape varieties and many vineyards on the Mosel, in Tuscany and Down Under in the Yarra Valley. What always fascinated him the most was the unmistakable flavour of each individual origin.

After returning to his native Szekszárd in southern Hungary, Zoltán got it into his head to get to the bottom of the indigenous expression of his homeland, and has taken up the old local grape variety Kadarka as a major project. The powerful counterpart to Kadarka is the spicy Kékfrankos (known in Austria as Blaufränkisch), which possesses the virtue of reflecting its soil of origin quite precisely. 

His wines are sophisticated and uncompromising, and provide a contrast to the popular & charming wines of the family estate. Under the name Heimann & Fiai (Heimann & Sons), he is presenting distinctive & original creations that appeal in particular to those wine lovers who are looking for uniqueness and expression of terroir.

The grapes for the Szekszárd Kékfrankos come from younger vineyards with vines aged between 5 to 10 years. Lower in concentration and with bright fruit aromas it is a genuine expression of the Szekszárd terroir and provides the right balance for an everyday bistro red.

This wine pairs well with lamb and vegetable dishes - try layered eggplant or Hungarian layered potato with paprika.

This product is part of the LCBO Vintages program. It may take approximately 10-14 business days to be delivered.

Regional wine from five-year old vines. Wild ferment, whole bunch, large Hungarian oak and a bit of stainless steel. Fresh, vivid, sweetly fruited and a bit spicy. Supple and bright, with a pepper and spice edge to the cherry and berry fruits, with a slightly tangy finish. Lovely purity and freshness here. Some fine green hints, with a crystalline quality on the finish. Shows freshness and delicacy with lovely purity to the fruit: this is low in alcohol but properly ripe.
