Cuvée 111

Tokaj 2014

A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and  40% Furmint. Straw-yellow, the very intense and layered bouquet is dominated by apricot, grainy mustard, elderflower and acacia honey. The strong mineral background of the Furmint counterbalances the zesty freshness of the Sauvignon Blanc, giving a superb refinement.

Winemaking

Hand-harvested and selected berries. Briefly cold-soaked and pressed. Completely cooled clusters and berries before handling and pressing. Indigenous yeast fermentation in stainless steel and wooden barrels. Sur Lie -aging, batonnage regularly for 1 and 4 months, respectively.

The Year

In general, we had a very dry year in Tokaj. After an ideal bud-breaking period bunches developed nicely in June and July. To maintain acidity, we decided to keep more leaves on for shadow. August started with brutal heat waves speeding up ripening. We had to start harvest by the end of the months (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Sauvignon Blanc) finishing up with the indigenous grapes (Furmint, Yellow Muscat, and Hárslevelű) in mid-October.
