Stock information

Following the popular first vintage of István Balassa's entry-level wine, its worthy sequel has arrived. In many respects, 2020 was a special year. After the cool and rainy growing season, the grapes arrived at the cellar in good quality, but were more suited for making lighter-style wines. As a result, the single-vineyard dry wines could not be made this vintage, instead a fine-tuned screw-cap wine could be made in a larger quantity. The grapes of the best vineyards were fermented and aged in separate barrels, and after lengthy tasting and blending experiments, the wine was bottled in April. Round palate, delicate fruity flavours, restrained acidity, a touch of minerality – representing the more charming side of Furmint.

Balassa István

„Five hectares is the limit for me. That’s the upper ceiling of quantity and quality that one can control. For me, that point comes at five hectares. The character of a vineyard shows itself the most if we wander around it incessantly; if we live together with the parcel and nature. We experience, learn and improve year after year. Something that worked in 2010 had to be redefined in 2011. In such a dominant and warm year, the differences between the vineyards appear more slowly. I work exclusively with second-fill barrels; the first fill never makes it into the bottle. It would suppress the character of the vineyards.”
