Cuvée 13 is Sauska's entry-level bottling, but its elegance and structure seem to indicate otherwise. Sweet and just a bit earthy on the nose, the palate is pristine with a concentrated core of crisp black fruit accented by sprays of fresh mint and violet. A beautifully balanced example of dry Hungarian red wine.
