Stock information

The estate wine of István Szepsy, pioneer of dry Furmint, yield control and classification, blended from grapes from the low-yield vines of Mád, Tállya and Tarcal. It was fermented in barrels and tanks, aged in new and second-fill, 300-litre oak barrels for 7 months, without malolactic fermentation. Owing to the raw material coming from different places of growth, minerality, roundness and fruitiness appear in perfect proportions in the wine. It has an intense character, aromas of pear, apple and honey, and a citrusy, thick palate with a creamy structure and minerality.

Szepsy István

„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.”
