Grape variety: Kadarka
An exceptional Kadarka from the Vida winery's 100 year old vines. The history of the name for this wine is also peculiar. One day, Peter Sr. was presenting his winery to one of his Japanese partners. When they were about to approach the vineyards, the gentleman noticed this little vine and jumped off the car and started shouting “BONSAI!” pointing at them. The tiny appearance of these stocks resembles a Bonsai, which in Japanese culture represents wisdom, a wish for long life and is also a symbol of good luck.
A charming wine, complex with light elegance, red berries, fresh acidity and playful spices.
Vinification: hand harvest, manual bunch selection, cooled fermentation at 25C° for 10 days. Ageing in inox tanks for 25 months.
Serving temperature 15C°-17C°.
