In an unusual way, in 2019, budding started relatively early, during the first week of April, then the brief cooler early summer spells balanced out the development. On top of that, the dry weather at the end of the summer favoured the harvest. It’s a novelty that the Furmint clones selected by Oremus already give one-third of the wine. Fermentation was carried out in steel tanks (70%) and in Zemplén barrels (30%) of 350 and 228 litres, followed by 6 months of ageing in 4-year old used barrels. A serious Tokaj white wine that’s already joy to drink. It’s characterised by elegant oak, lots of fruit, vibrant acidity and prominent minerality. So far, it’s only available exclusively in magnum bottles.
„2011 was the opportunity to make the ideal dry white wine. The grapes were so healthy that they were smiling at you. This is the 13th vintage of our dry estate wine, yet we learn something new from nature every year. The most important thing we’ve experienced in the past ten years was balance. The precise timing of the harvest, but even more giving full concentration during the time of fermentation. For me fermentation is the most important time, the most significant part of a wine’s life and one that I supervise throughout. That’s the crucial point: when the grape becomes a wine.”
