“Csaba Malatinszky’s veins must run with Cabernet Franc. He is obsessive about tending his vines and says his 30 hectares, farmed organically in Villány and Siklós since 2010, “are as much as he’d ever want to own as he can manage himself without delegating”. He was Hungary’s leading sommelier before turning to winemaking and his focus is balanced, complex reds, notably Cabernet Franc, which suits the Villány terroir so well. The flagship, unfiltered Kúria range always impresses, especially Cab Franc and Kövesföld (a single vineyard Bordeux blend), while his aromatic Serena white and refined Chardonnay are well worth trying.”

Caroline Gilby, Decanter London November 2011

“Deep vibrant ruby purple.  Intense and complex on the nose – notes of raspberry, black tea and subtle vanilla. Intense and concentrated on the palate, with fine fruit and deliciously textured tannins, balanced acids, and a long finish” Caroline Gilby MW 2009
