Anyone who has ever met Frigyes Bott knows that he harvests the grapes for this wine from the vineyard that is closest to his heart. Although only a dirt road separates it from the other vineyards, here we can encounter a different side of Kékfrankos – a clone with smaller berries and looser bunches. It was spontaneously fermented, and after 14 months of ageing in barrels, it was placed in steel tanks for about half a year before it was bottled without filtering or fining. The outcome exceeded all expectations. The palate is incredibly concentrated, with a meaty palate paired with a spicy and elegant nose.
It was love at first sight when I first laid my eyes upon the nine hectares which lie on Öreg-hegy (Old Hill) at the confluence of the Danube and the Garam rivers, the latter which after running down the Slovakian hills quietens down on the plain.
