After a generally warm and dry decade, this vintage brought moderate and balanced weather to Tokaj-Hegyalja. The winery’s ‘estate Furmint’ is selected from the most important Szepsy vineyards, from 20- to 60-year-old vines. It was spontaneously fermented, predominantly in barrels, then aged for 6 months. The taut palate is rounded out by the 5 g/l of residual sugar. The nose opens slowly with pear, mint, citrus, and the palate shows serious structure. It has long ageing potential.
„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.”
