Hummel Villányi Portugieser 2017 1 Hummel

Forget everything you've ever heard about Portugieser and maybe thought so too. In fact, Portugieser is one of the highest quality central and eastern European red varieties. The fact that you could see it differently in the past, was mainly due to far too high yields and questionable processing. Like any other grape variety under such conditions, Portugieser lost its expressive power and could not bring his format to bear. In reality, it is in its nature and format close to Pinot Noir, which shows especially in aged wines.
The Hummel Winery has been showing for 20 years that Portugieser from Villány with yields of up to 50 hl/ha produces expressive, accessible, complex and harmonious red wines that convey lasting drinking pleasure and enjoyment paired with high aging potential.
Our Hummel Villányi Portugieser 2017 is yet another example of a sophisticated, fruity, juicy, beautifully structured Portugieser, and this already in the basic quality. It owes this format to its excellent slope, the Villányer terroir and the responsible yield of 50 hl/ha.

Hummel Villányi Kékfrankos Nagytótfalu 2012 1 Hummel

2012 was a big year with relatively low yields. The result was strong structured wines with maturation requirements and potential. Accordingly, the Kékfrankos Nagytótfalu 2012 needed time to get into drinking maturity. And it was worth waiting! It shows ripe fruit, firm structure, consistency and freshness. It opens with the usual strong cherry and sour cherry aromas, followed by its distinctive but fine acidity, until the overall picture is framed and supported by an impressively firm tannin structure and minerality. With the Kékfrankos Nagytótfalu 2012, the Villáge level of our Kékfrankos shows that Villány is an excellent terroir for Kékfrankos.

Hummel Villányi Cabernet Sauvignon
Nagytótfalu 2010 1 Hummel

Wein-Plus 87 points

2010 is considered a difficult year due to its precipitous, cool weather. In such vintages, wines benefit in particular from barren vineyards with low yields. In the Cabernet Sauvignon Nagytótfalu 2010, the advantages of our practice of green, unfertilized vineyards are reflected in a pleasant way. Due to their low yields, they produce very expressive wines even in difficult years. In the cellar, the Cabernet Sauvignon Nagytótfalu benefited in 2010 from its long barrel maturity, which is reflected in velvety, firm, yet fine tannins, surrounded by ripe fruit and mild invigorating acidity. An exceptional 2010er with maturation potential. From now until at least 2025.

"It's still far too rare for a Portuguese to show what the variety really is capable for, but Hummel's Jammerthal shows it: almost, polished, cool, dry and mineral, incredibly appetizing in his youth, but also good for many years of maturity."
