Tokaji Late Harvest "Fortissimo" 2016

The light straw colour is coupled with fresh fruity smell, which is dominated by orange peel and pear. These compounds can be found on the palate complemented by peach. The fresh, crisp acids provide perfect balance to the wine.

It works perfectly as aperitif but nice with fruity desserts as well as fois gras.

Wine description

Terroir

Mezőzombor - Galambos vineyard
The soil is typically brown forest soil, but there are striking spots in it. The subsoil is rhyolite, which is almost completely covered with a rhyolite tuff.
Tarcal - Terézia vineyard
The soil is an optimal blend of loess and brown forest soil, which has similar subsoil to Galambos, but it rests on a perlite cone.

Vineyard

The vineyards were replanted between 1999 and 2010, using 1,8 m and 2 m row spacing and 0,8 m between the vines according to the modern grape growing technology. We use 2 bud spur-pruning and the yield control is 1,5 kg / vine. All of our vineyards are under organic cultivation since 2009.

Vintage

Spring was difficult in the beginning because of the colder than usual weather. The high precipitation in July and August desired the increased attention of the viticulturists. In contrary to the difficulties we were able to protect our vineyards with organic methods. The wet weather made it possible to create wine with strong acidity and large body.

Technology

Heavily botrytised bunches were picked by hand in the middle of October.
Berries were de-stemmed and then pressed in pneumatic tank press. The juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks as well as aged in tanks.
Date of bottling: 24th July 2017

Variety

70% Hárslevelű, 30% Furmint
