Crazy Lud Red, Maurer Oszkár
Region: Szerèmsèg, Serbia
Grapes: Blaüfrankisch & Cabernet Sauvignon
Wine type: Red
About: Oszkàr cultivates 15 ha of land, worked with horses in Szerèmsèg (Fruška Gora) and Szabadka in Serbia. As a 4th generation winemaker, Oszkàr works with very old vines including an ungrafted 138 years old Kadarka, the oldest of this kind on the planet. In general, he focuses on autochthonous grapes like Furmint, Bakator, Kövidinka, Szerèmi Zöld, Olaszrizling and Mèzes Fehèr.
The essence of the wine region is the Fruska Gora Mountain. This 500 million years old formation is made up of volcanic bedrock and covered with marine sediment, resulting in wines with piercing acidity and astonishing minerality.
Silky smooth red best enjoyed slightly chilled!
