Mád, Nyúlászó vineyard, yellow clay and tuff soil, 60-year-old vines. Furmint rounded out with a touch of Hárslevelű, fermented in barrels with its own yeast. It was aged in second-fill, 300-litre Kádár barrels for 7 months. A bone dry, layered and long wine with lots of minerality. Grapefruit and peach, deep and juicy palate.
„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.”
