P.A.N.K. (Pálffy Attila Natural Köveskál) is the natural wine project of Attila Pálffy from Pálffy Pince, P.A.N.K. is both an acronym of his name and village (the noble village of Köveskál), and an homage to Attila’s love of punk music and culture. While Attilla is a seventh-generation winemaker, P.A.N.K. started as a passion project, but has now become his full-time job. The unfiltered and unfined P.A.N.K. Pet-Nats and Anfora wines caused a stir in Hungary when they were first released, and these wines - in perfect punk fashion - still run into problems with the authorities for their unconventional bent.
The P.A.N.K. wines come from their own organic vineyards in and around Köveskál. They have been organic since 2005, and in 2013 they started biodynamic winemaking on half of the estate. Attila works with very minimal intervention techniques in the cellar, such as spontaneous fermentation, zero sulfur, and no fining and filtering.
Luxus is a super limited Syrah Pet-Nat named because the Syrah harvest happened on a Saturday in September when no one was working. So, without even a friend to help, Attila and his fiancée Orsolya hand-picked every grape that ended up in the wine. Fermentation was spontaneous and lengthy, and the wine was left unfiltered, unfined and not disgorged. The resulting pét-nat is medium-bodied and dry with soft red fruit, earthy notes and an intriguing, rich quality.
