An energetic, vibrant Hárslevelű from the loess soil of the Lónyai vineyard in Tarcal. Its pronounced character is clearly owing to the local soil and the precise work of Stéphanie Berecz. The elegant use of oak is typical of all the cellar’s wines, so the Lónyai is also spontaneously fermented in barrels, in which it is also aged for almost half a year. The palate is salty and mineral, with the plentiful white-fleshed fruits, together with the herbal notes, creating a fresh, yet elegant impression.
„We are on the road of learning in Tokaj. As the base of the sweet wines are the dry ones, we firstly have to become acquainted with the character of a good dry wine, then the next step will be the realisation of the vineyard character in sweet wines. 2011 was the best vintage for dry wines from loess soil. We experimented in small batches from September to the end of November with grapes of different levels of ripeness, without noble rot, for choosing the perfect harvest date in our vineyards. For a long time people looked down on these loess areas, but Zsolt and myself believed in loess a lot due to the past of Tarcal. We really love Hárslevelű and we are starting to get to know our vineyards.”
