The pre-booking of the newest Kopar starts on 14th March and according to our plans lasts for 1 month. The 2016 vintage of this Bordaux style blend has less bottle so the pre-booking quantity is limited.
Based on the experiences of the previous years the wine lovers make a dart quickly on the wood boxes fill with Kopars. This year it is worth to do even sooner, because now it is not sure that the offer lasts until the end of the pre-booking period.
Looking back to the vintage of 2016 the vintage was unusually mild, and the phenological phases after it: shooting, blooming and ripening all worked out after the average. Though April and September were drier than in the previous years, there were some occasions during the year when great quantity of rain fell onto our vineyards.
The harvest was done under nice weather circumstances and we finished with it on 20th October. We could harvest the varieties in ideal ripeness and health with good sugar-acid balance and phenolic ripeness. The taste and aromas were also fair.
So the good vintage gave nice wines. Kopar 2016 – similar to 2015 – is a fruity, easy to love item. Even now it is well drinkable and nice wine, not the concentration but elegance characterizes it. The ratio of the varieties – similar to the previous vintages – is Cabernet Franc accented and it is supplemented by Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. The wine was aged both in big and small barrels.
The planned period: from 14th March 2019. to 15h April 2019.
Pre-booking can be made only for 12 bottle wood box units.
The price of 1 bottle during this period: 6.200,- HUF, so one box is 74.400,- HUF.
After every 2 boxes (24 bottles) we give 1 bottle of Gere Kopar 2016 Magnum (1,5 l) for free.
The date when put into circulation: 1st September 2019
