Winemaking: Made from Furmint grapes harvested on the stoniest southeast-facing terrace, one of the highest land of the Old King vineyard, around 1500 m2 bordered by oak forest. We harvested the golden bunches at the optimal point of ripeness. We spontaneously fermented and aged the wine in barrels.
Thanks to meticulous harvest and winemaking work this fruit-driven, crystal-clear, mineral wine is elegant and harmonious with long cellaring potential..

Wine tasting:Wines from Öreg Király vineyard develop more slowly than wines from other Mád vineyards. It is possible that they do not present the most attractive character when young, but over time we come to taste the reference quality in these lots: distinct, clear line and chiselled wines. Fuller character, restrained aromas describe the wine at its current stage of development. Distinct and concentrated.” (Gabriella Mészáros)
