The uniqueness of the wine is provided by the location of the Betsek vineyard and the small bunches of the 60-year-old vines. The typical soil of the area is yellow clay and white tufa. The wine was fermented in barrels, then after the malolactic fermentation, it was aged for 8 months in 300-litre oak barrels. The outcome is a well-structured wine with appealing pear, vanilla aromas and a long mineral finish.
„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.”
