This plot in Sümeg belongs to Balázs’s friend, Tamas Tóth, who carried out the organic cultivation until the harvest, and from then on, every step has been linked to Balázs. As is typical of Sümeg, the Öreghegy vineyard, from which half a hectare of organically-cultivated Pinot Noir comes, is rich in limestone and clay. It was fermented spontaneously in tanks in the cellar, together with whole bunches. After pressing, it was aged for one year in used five-hectolitre barrels, then bottled without filtering and fining with only minimal added sulphur.
It was bottled in October 2022.

Spontaneous fermentation, long ageing and unfiltered bottling have been fundamental principles ever since the first vintage
