Stock information



One of the most famous vineyards in the eastern part of Mád, which also possesses the most serious qualities regarding soil science. As the result of the volcanic activity, the soil is extremely diverse, with red clay, decomposed zeolite, hard rhyolite and tuff all found here. The characteristics of the 0.98-hectare plot 46 are perfectly reproduced by this Furmint: it’s salty, stony and mineral. As usual, the wine was spontaneously fermented in barrels with its own yeast, followed by 8 months of ageing in a 300-litre first-fill oak barrels.

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.”
