Winemaking: blend of grapes from several pickings. After each harvest we destemmed the grapes and macerated them in the must for 3-4 hours. Then it was gently pressed before spontaneous fermentation of the wine in the barrel. We blended them after fermentation and are currently aging it in a 136-l barrel.

Wine tasting: “Vibrant spiciness in the nose with mint, aniseed, slight saltiness. A touch restrained but opens beautifully with some air. Distinct acids in the mouth, lively but not overpowering in quantity or quality. A hint of tannin perceptible next to the acids. Expressly long and extended on the palate. A subtly restrained herbiness combines with the salty-mineral notes. Straight, beautiful structure that is right at the start of its development.” (Gabriella Mészáros)
