Vineyards

Padihegy

Surrounded by a white riolite fence with quartz blocks the Padihegy vineyard was planted eight years ago. Due to the delicate quality and unique balance of soil, it has become the only vineyard in the Villany or any other wine region with this quality of wines. Padihegy has played a key role in the harvesting of sparkling wines, with new Chardonnay and Pinot Noir plantations developing in the future.

 

 

Winemaking

After hand-harvest and rigorous hand-sorting 28-35 days of total maceration to preserve the varietal's character. Controlled malolactic fermentation in stainless steel and small used French oak.

75% aged in used French oak for 15 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.
