Discovering the wine region of Dél-Pannónia

Hungary">Hungary/eszak-dunantul/pannonhalma">Pannonhalma is a wine region in north-western Hungary. It constitutes the eastern corner of Transdanubia, the traditional region of Hungary which Lies across the Danube (trans danubia) from the Hungarian capital Budapest. As this corner of Hungary focuses mainly on red wine production, Pannonhalma's vineyards are planted mostly with the Bordeaux wine grapes Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, as well as Burgundy's Pinot Noir. Pannonhalma is situated just south-east of Gyor, the regional capital of Gyor-Moson-Sopron county (of which Sopron makes up the western third), and the western Transdanubia region.

Although Pannonhalma is a Long way from Hungary's most famous wine regions (Tokaj for whites and Villany for reds) it produces wines of quality, many of which are exported to other European countries and the United States. In wine terms Pannonhalma's name is not as internationally recognized as Hungary's other wine regions (such as Tokaj or Villany). However the district has considerable cultural and historical significance. When Otto von Habsburg, the last Crown Prince of Austria-Hungary died in July 2011, Pannonhalma Archabbey was chosen as the burial place for the prince's heart.

(His Body was entombed at the Imperial Crypt in Vienna. ) The abbey Complex, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, crowns the Mount of Saint Martin that overlooks Pannonhalma town.

Discover the grape variety: Cabernet franc

Cabernet Franc is one of the oldest red grape varieties in Bordeaux. The Libourne region is its terroir where it develops best. The terroirs of Saint-Emilion and Fronsac allow it to mature and develop its best range of aromas. It is also the majority in many blends. The very famous Château Cheval Blanc, for example, uses 60% Cabernet Franc. The wines produced with Cabernet Franc are medium in colour with fine tannins and subtle aromas of small red fruits and spices. When blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon, it brings complexity and a bouquet of aromas to the wine. It produces fruity wines that can be drunk quite quickly, but whose great vintages can be kept for a long time. It is an earlier grape variety than Cabernet Sauvignon, which means that it is planted as far north as the Loire Valley. In Anjou, it is also used to make sweet rosé wines. Cabernet Franc is now used in some twenty countries in Europe and throughout the world.
