Wine description

Terroir

Mezőzombor - Zomborka vineyard
The soil is typically brown forest soil, but there are loess spots in it. The subsoil is rhyolite, which is almost completely covered with rhyolite tuff.

Vineyard

The vineyards were replanted between 1999 and 2002, using 1,8 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 rain in September was favourable. The raw material of dry wines was picked with careful sorting, because the noble rot appeared quite early on the bunches. The quality of the grapes was excellent. Perfectly mature berries were picked, which did not have too high sugar content. Ripe, crispy acids are coupled with pure, fruity flavour in the dry wines.
The must was fermented in 500 L new oak barrels at 14-16 °C by selected yeast. The wine was aged on fine lees for 7 months in the same barrels, and stirred occasionally.
Date of bottling: 05th July 2018.
