Exactly two years ago, in February, we tasted at Dávid’s cool cellar. A scheme was born in our heads about a medium-bodied red made from local varieties, with low intervention, from Tihany. We came up with the label, from a postcard from 1928, almost on the spot. After the memorable first vintage, we’re now revealing the next. Dávid harvested the grapes from his own land, from the Ráta vineyard, which is located behind Sajkod Bay. Thirty-year-old vines, basalt tuff soil, Kékfrankos and Zweiglet varieties. One of the largest stretches of parcels of the peninsula, with great qualities. The grapes were harvested on September 24, then the whole bunches and berries were spontaneously fermented in open vats. The brief soaking was followed by pressing, then ageing in used barrels and tanks, on fine lees. Bottling took place in December 2021, without filtering and with a minimal amount of sulphur (15mg/l).
We tasted the then still separate Kékfrankos and Zweigelt barrels at Dávid’s in March 2021. Then, we also tasted the lively new wine character that is still in the wine. The exciting, sweetish, grapey note, because of the larger proportion of Zweiglet (60%), appears on the nose again. Similarly charming is the colour, and the thick, fruity palate with fresh acidity and pure flavours.
