Stock information

The vineyard, which is located on the edge of the Mád Basin, has one of the most diverse and top-notch soil structures. It comprises red clay, filled with rhyolite tuff, carbonized and silicified tree trunks, often with pumice and zeolitized rocks. Usually, three things come to mind regarding the wines of the region: elegance, complexity and minerality. This is also true in the case of the Szent Tamás 2021. Vines of different ages with varying emphasis, just the right amount of ageing in barrels, with an adequate amount of resting. A wine with a lengthy opening, great ageing potential and loads of layers.

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.”
