Wine description

Terroir

Tarcal - Terézia vineyard
The soil is an optimal blend of loess and brown forest soil, which rests on a rhyolite bedrock, but on a perlite cone. There are also traces of lime in the area. From the upper parts of the hill, the topsoil was eroded and the perlite appeared on the surface, which is continuously fragmenting during cultivation. The presence of different types of soils and rocks provide extremely rich minerality for the grapevine.

Vineyard

The vineyards were replanted between 2005 and 2010, using 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

After a long time, we had a real, continental January.
The temperature often decreased below minus 10 degrees, though precipitation was very low. The spring temperature has slowly, gradually risen and May was still cooler than usual.

Technology

The ripe and healthy berries were picked in the beginning of September. The quality of the grapes was excellent. The vintage ensured perfect raw material for the dry sparkling wine making, with high acid- and low sugar content.
The grape juice was fermented in stainless steel tank and then filled into bottles for second fermentation. The wine was matured for 1,5 years on fine lees before disgorging, thus developing a richer aroma.
Date of bottling: 07th August 2018
