The first wine has arrived from the legendary Petrács vineyard, alongside the Mandolás Furmint that used to be an absolute ruler until now on Tempos Vega Sicilia’s Hungarian estate. The wine that has fulfilled the vision of retiring András Bacsó and the Spanish estate has been tried and tested many times. Its first – unofficial – 2015 vintage appeared as a unique wine at the Anyukám mondta restaurant in Encs, then the Bortársaság team’s Saját Kézzel (“By our own hands”) wine – hoed, pruned, shoot-selected by us – also came from here in 2017. It inherited the name from its earlier owner, major general Ernest von Petrasch, who got hold of the plot in 1762. The vineyard’s andesite soil is full of semi-precious stones and has been treated as a treasure ever since the estate was established. In addition to its outstanding qualities, location and 60-year-old bush-vine trained vines, they have found very old Furmint vines that are possibly pre-phylloxera or from right afterwards. Owing to its steepness, machine cultivation is impossible, so besides people, work on the plot is carried out by horses.
After the wine’s gentle pressing, it was fermented in new French and Hungarian Miklóssy barrels, followed by 8 months of ageing, with once-a-week battonage during the first 3 months. Finally, it was bottled after a 6-month long rest in tanks.
It’s a young wine with more oak-emphasis than for contemporary tastes. A thick, dense-structured, likely good-ageabiliy Furmint from which the uniqueness of the vineyards comes through.
