The vintage brought the base wine high acidity and taut structure, and together with the aszú berries, the final composition was 70% Furmint, 20% Hárslevelű and 10% Sárgamuskotály. It was harvested from old vines, then sorted precisely. The spontaneous fermentation was followed by 30 months of barrel ageing. Harmony in the bottle, 260 grams of residual sugar, 7g/l of acidity and 9% alcohol. Its aromas change constantly, the dense and thick palate is made airy by the lovely acidity. A big aszú once again from István Szepsy’s deep cellar.
„I’ve been saying for 20 years that we’d stop adding new areas. However, we just can’t stop ourselves! Now it’s the andesite soil of Tállya and its five first-class vineyards that excite me. Once it accounted for most of the grapes in the wine region. My wife’s hairdresser has even asked me why I go there so often. We discover 800-year-old vineyard names and each parcel hides a surprise. The 2011 wines seem suspiciously good: that’s when it’s the most nerve wrecking for the winemaker. Again it showed that there is no recipe in winemaking; the practice of walking the vineyards and experimenting cannot be replaced by anything. Every day we try to make our wines believing that the wine region will once again be at the place where it should be.”
