Winemaking

Hand-harvested and selected berries briefly cold-soaked and pressed. Fermented using indigenous yeast in stainless steel and oak.  63 %-aged in stainless steel, 27% in barrel aged for 4 months. 

The Year

After a very hard winter and cold spring mid-April, bud-break was a relief. We got just enough (35-50 mm) rain to get the plants energized. End of May was beautiful with gradual warmup, an optimal temperature at blooming that resulted perfect binding. The temperature remained very high until mid-September with peaks of 39 °C. The heat did not bring any rain causing serious slow-down in the growing process. Grapes for dry wines remained healthy with slightly lower acidity than normal in Tokaj due to the August heat.
