This is the type that can be called as the most important red wine source of our homeland, Hungary. Except for Tokaj, it can be found all over the country in every wine-district. It is present not only in our country, but in all the neighbouring lands. According to some surveys, it has over forty allonyms. Legend has it that this variety got its Hungarian name from the time when Napoleon’s soldiers in the town of Sopron were allowed to pay for this sort of wine with blue franks only (Unfortunately, this myth is not true since at the time of Napoleon merely white wines were available in Sopron). The type itself is produces a rich crop, not susceptible to rotting, but slightly sensitive to freez. The wines made out of Blue Frankish belong to the styles that are developing in the most visible way these days. Alongside the light Beaujolais style wines, the serious, corpulent and sometimes field-selected Blue Frankish has huge potentials and is on the way to gain massive grounds. Moreover, it is also the type that provided essence to the two famous Bull’s Blood types (that of Eger and Szekszárd). In the Wine Region of Danube, the main emphasis is mostly laid on the lighter, cherry-morello-flavoured, spicy wines. Yet, if the vintage enables to do so, world-class wines can be produced out of this especially lovely type of grape.
