Sauvignon Blanc

Tokaj 2018

Pale yellow with green hues. Rich elderflower and tropical aromas in the nose. Crunchy and refreshing in the mouth along with elder, a hint of goose and some ginger. Well cooled, it will definitely be a perfect summer wine.

The Year

2018 was an extremely dry and hot year with timely pruning. After frostbite, the shoots started to develop so intensely we haven't experienced before. By the end of June, we were done with all the green works we usually finish by late July. Ripening went the same way, literally in a blink. Our first harvest date was the 2nd of August with sparkling wine base Chardonnay from Birsalmás-vineyard. Due to our conscious choice of clones and varietals on the respective vineyards, we had a minimal loss of botrytis or volatility. In the fall, botrytis almost entirely failed to show up, therefore we, unfortunately, won't produce aszú wines from this year. On a happier note, grape quality for late harvest was simply stunning, we managed to pull in awesome quality grapes wrapping up the harvest unusually early, on October 24th.
