Beside the Kékfrankos, a lighter red is planned to be made every year at the winery, crafted from several varieties fermented together, and aged for a shorter time. The September is the zero version of this wine, made with a Merlot base, blended with 17% Pinot Noir from the one-hectare parcel above the winery. The hand-picked grapes needed no sorting, arriving to the cellar quickly, and the larger part was put into the vats destemmed, with the smaller part in whole bunches. It was spontaneously fermented with daily punching down, while pressing was followed by a short settling, then a year of barrel ageing. The warm character on the nose is reminiscent of Bierzo, with stony, pomegranate aromas, and slowly opening fruit. The palate is full of life, with ripe structure, subtle grip and tasty tannins on the finish. 

It was bottled during November 2019, without fining or filtering.
