Type: Red Wine
Grape: Kékfrankos/Cabernet Sauvignon/Vadfekete/Hamburg Muscat/Kadarka
“Lud” means Goose in Hungarian and Crazy in Serbian. There’s an old Hungarian expression, “Ha lúd, legyen kövér!” that literally translates to “If it’s a goose, let it be fat.” In other words, if you’re going to go big, go big.
Macerated in open vats for 7 days on the skins and then barreled down to 350L oak barrels, it’s squarely in the chilled red category, but not in the carbonic or purely whole cluster kind of way. The short maceration keeps the muscat aromatics fresh, but there’s grip from the Cabernet and meatiness from the Kékfrankos too. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with just a touch of sulfur.
