Although the vinification method has remained the same: the must pressed from the whole bunches was spontaneously fermented in five-hectolitre barrels, the new vintage of Frigyes’ Riesling differs from the usual style. The real difference can be seen while pouring it, as this is the first time this wine was bottled unfiltered and with even more lees, therefore it’s now approaching the cloudier, wilder wines of the selection.
“We are seeking the variety’s ‘natural wine’ side, as we don’t want to go in the German, razor-sharp acidity style direction. We wish to keep the same elegance, only in a lot more layers. That’s why the biggest change in 2020 happened with this wine.” – Frigyes Bott.
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.
