Kolonia 52 Controlled Chaos
Origin: Balaton, Hungary
Grapes: Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, Furmint
Kolnia 52 is the brainchild of two of the most amazing talents we've seen in recent years. Both Annamaria Torok and Attila Francisti have a wealth of expertise, having worked with some of the pioneers of biodynamic farming, including Stephanie and Edi Tscheppe of Gut Oggau and Gernot and Heike Heinrich. The two have now established themselves in a small house and cellar in the hills of Szent Györgyhegy, a subregion of the Lake Balaton region in Western Hungary, where they cultivate their own Cuvée Grapes grapes of Furmint, Kekfrankos, as well as small parcels of Pinot Noir alongside other local varieties. Controlled Chaos is an unusual co-ferment of Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Furmint. Made with a delicate touch, Controlled Chaos is lifted and bright in profile.
