Olaszrizling 2016

The product is no longer available.

The small Szentbékkálla winery joined our selection last year. We tasted their wines again at the beginning of the spring and chose three wines: the Olaszrizling, the Chardonnay and the Öregtökék (lit. Old vines), then in an adventurous move, we got them new clothes. We called a tender to design a new label. Balázs’s old acquaintance and designer of his former labels, Péter Nemes, who lives just a couple of streets away from the cellar, entered under a pseudonym and he won. It turned out there is no better brief for graphic design than when someone knows the winemaker. The wines are zesty, just like Balázs, who has started cultivating the neighbouring 1.5-hectare, abandoned vineyard since March as a hobby, in order to avoid it being grubbed up.

 

A ripe Olaszrizling from 30-year-old vines with small bunches harvested from a southeast-facing site, spontaneously fermented in the tanks of Balázs Káli’s tiny and functional cellar. Almond, apple and minerals, full, nice and focussed, just as we’ve come to expect from Balázs’s wines. Long and mineral, without any exaggerated body, yet with serious concentration.
