Our Turán (in Hungary – Agria in North America) is a Teinturier grape variety from Hungary that makes a “real red wine” as the red color of the wine can come directly from the grape’s red juice, not just from the red skin.
Our small plot of Turán is now producing a sustainable number of grapes and it is creating an excellent fruity wine. We process the grapes as if they are a white wine, so no soaking on the grape skin, yet the natural red juice from the berries creates an amazing light red wine with delightful fruit aromas and flavors.
Weather conditions were very sub optimal. Wine produced did not meet our standards.
Harvest Date: August 19th
Due to extreme hail in July, most of the Turán crop was damaged and only a small amount of wine was made.
