“A few years ago, I decided to make something from Tihany. Being a peninsula, there wasn’t really a wine tradition connected to it, so I decided to make a rosé, a special rosé from this volcanic location that stretches out into Lake Balaton. For the first vintage, I purchased the Kékfrankos grapes from Dávid Bökő, who made the second vintage himself based on the original concept: ripe grapes, whole-bunch pressing, completely spontaneous fermentation, keeping it on the fine lees for a long time,” says Attila Tálos, about the second vintage of the Tihany Rozé that has just arrived.

 

Dávid harvested the Kékfrankos and the Zweigelt varieties on two different dates, from the plots between Sajkod Bay and the Külső-tó (Outer Lake), about 200 metres from the shore of Lake Balaton. Following the whole-bunch pressing and brief settling, they were fermented spontaneously (separately) in temperature-controlled tanks, then after lengthy ageing on lees, they were blended in February with the balance leaning towards Kékfrankos. The integrated wine was bottled in mid-May. 

 

The character we got to know in 2018 became more sophisticated. The palate is surprisingly substantial and broad with structure like a white wine, yet it remains within its style: a thirst-quenching, delicate wine with good drinkability. It can even be enjoyed it ice-cold, it’s worth sitting down and spending time with it.
