Based on the 1730 classification, the cone-shaped rock formation of the Percze vineyard is the smallest vineyard in Mád. The manually-harvested Furmint from the volcanic soil was fermented in barrels inoculated with yeast from the harvest a few weeks prior. After gravity settling, ageing took place in second-fill, 300-litre Kádár barrels for 7 months, after which minimal filtering was carried out. Based on several years of experience, the porous structure and elegant spices of barrels made from Sessile oak match the character of Mád wines best. The palate is round with taut acids and it’s salty, mineral and fiery at the same time, with minimal residual sugar for the long ageing potential. It’s a small batch from a small vineyard, 1,000 bottles were produced.
„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.”
