Stock information

The wine comes from the Mézes Mály vineyard from the hill that stretches between Tokaj and Tarcal, and its history goes back more than 700 years. In terms of soil silence, it’s one of Tokaj’s most exciting vineyards: from volcanic rocks, to loess and clay, almost everything can be found here. This is where István Balassa harvested the material for his 2022 Furmint from, which – in particularly beautiful vintages – bears the name of his daughter, Villő. Already the nose gives away the fact that one is dealing with a serious bottling: pear, pollen, oak spices, the creamy and mineral palate is full of quince and ripe peach. It has perfect balance and serious ageing potential. 720 bottles were made of it.

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.”
