The 2019 vintage of Bott Furmint was a great success, and it ran out in just a few months. The 2020 vintage follows the previous one every step of the way. The vinification was kept as simple as possible, without skin contact, with whole bunch pressing and spontaneous fermentation in barrels, then bottling without filtering. Nevertheless, it still comes in a clean form, without notes of lees. It’s a great wine with delicious details, representing the elegant and easy-to-drink style of Furmint and the lively flavours typical of the wine region.
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.
The whole thing started as a hobby. But there are so many questions that 200 litres of wine cannot answer. That's how the vineyard area grew to nine hectares, out of which five are yielding and the other four are due to yield for the first time around now.
I fell in love when I saw the beautiful hills that belonged to the former vineyard of the Esztergom primate's wine cellar. There was no question about where I was going to make wine.
