The first vintage from the Tállya vineyard, where the soil is a mixture of rhyolite tuff and quartz, was made in 2013. The concentration of the wine is given by the 60-year-old vines and low yield. The fermentation was carried out in barrels, then following the malolactic fermentation, the wine was aged in new and second-fill 300-litre barrels for 8 months. The nose is dominated by the pear and quince notes, while the palate is taut, salty and mineral.
„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.”
