Stock information

Mád’s largest vineyard is the Betsek, which has a special mesoclimate (it sometimes preserves the mist even until midday in the autumn) and geology (soil rich in rhyolite, andesite and quartz) that are favourable for the production of dry and sweet wines of excellent quality. One of István Balassa's most popular wines is his Furmint harvested from here and spontaneously fermented in 300-litre barrels, in which it is also aged for 8 months. Beside the Furmint’s stone fruit, stony and mineral aromas return on the nose alongside the barrel spices. It has a very intense, round palate with the saltiness typical of the Betsek appearing on the very long finish.

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.”
