Bock Ermitage Cuvee 2018
Bock Ermitage Cuvee is Bock's most popular wine. Medium-dark garnet red colour. Opens with a nose of red fruits and hints of spice. Ripe red plum and sour cherry flavours on the palate with hints of pepper, leather spice and chocolate in the aftertaste.
Blend of Merlot, Pinot Noir, Portugieser, Syrah based on Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon. The fruit comes from Bock's various vineyards across the Villány wine region in Hungary. Villány is the warmest and sunniest wine region in Hungary with a sub-Meditteranean climate and southern exposure. The vines grow in limestone, loess, clay soils.
Ages for 12 months in large oak barrels (70%) and used barrique barrels (30%).
