Description

The youngest Barbár is obviously the most tense right now. Fine forest fruits, multicolored aroma, vibrant acidity. Balanced, not cumbersome. Its taste is long and enjoyable.

From the winery: Barbár – the Barbarian – is the flagship wine of our winery. It showcases all the virtues we expect from a great wine: finer shades and exciting aromas waiting to be explored, lots of fruit, depth, character and terroir expression adding up to a balanced whole. The name and the story behind it expresses the soul and character of Zoltán Heimann. Barbár was inspired by the great Hungarian composer Béla Bartók. As a response to the critics who dismissed Bartók’s music as barbaric the composer wrote a piece with the title Allegro Barbaro. This mould-breaking, eclectic piano work shows some common traits with our Barbár: while it is undeniably powerful and highly expressive, it is also elegant, varied and magnetic.
