The Heimanns’ legendary big wine is made with the Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Tannat and Kékfrankos varieties. The selected grapes of the best terroirs were fermented separately, then blended only after ageing in oak barrels. The finished wine was aged for another 14 months in the bottles, which made it so complex, rich in details and long-lasting.

The Heimann Barbár (“barbarian”) is a rich, complex, full-bodied red that puts a spin on the classic warm bikavér wines of the Szekszárd region. The name reflects on Hungarian composer Béla Bartók’s Allegro Barbaro, a composition that is strong and powerful, yet still elegant and easy to enjoy.

The wine is an eclectic blend of grapes: cabernet franc and merlot are blended with the little-known grape tannat and local kékfrankos. The Heimann family brought tannat from South-West France to Szekszárd believing that its robust, rich character can enhance the traditional Szekszárd style, and they have been proven right with this wine. Together with kékfrankos, the traditional grape variety of the area, this wine reflects on the classic Szekszárdi bikavér (“Bull’s blood of Szekszárd) style with a fresh twist. The result is a vibrant, juicy red that still isn’t overpowering, and has just the right balance of strength and finesse. An innovative top-class wine.
