Mihály Fekete about Kékfrankos
We have been cultivating Kékfrankos since 1970 on 2 hectares using the Guyot system in Fekete Estate. The perfect yield of Kékfrankos is 1.5 kg/vine. It prefers loess soils. For a truly great Kékfrankos, skin maceration and aging in large 500- to 1000-l barrels for about a year is necessary. It is worth presenting complex, exciting and high quality Kékfrankos to the world market. In Hungary Kékfrankos has great prestige as it is a reliable variety from which good medium body wines can be made which are both very drinkable yet complex.
