Characteristics of the vintage
Hot and arid year. Spring was cool and dry with late bud break, followed by flowering at the usual beginning of June. After a summer marked by heat and drought, we were able to harvest very good dry whites in the typical style and quality.
Very early harvest, between the 31st of August and 7th of September. Many different plots of the Disznókő vineyard were harvested and vinified separately. We picked fully ripened, healthy bunches in small boxes of 20 kg (44 lbs).
Light straw yellow robe with green highlights. Very fresh, fruity nose with almond, white peach, stone fruits, and pear aromas. On the palate, the very fresh and tonic acidity is balanced by a good weight, with pleasant texture. An aromatic touch and minerality in the finish.
The fruits of the different plots were vinified separately. Most of the grapes were pressed directly without destemming, allowed to settle for a night and then fermented in stainless steel vats at a temperature controlled between 16-18°C (61-64 F). No malolactic fermentation.
The different lots were blended in December and the wine was aged on its fine lees in stainless steel vats for 3 months. Bottled in March 2023 in 750 ml Tokaji bottle with glass stoppers.
Residual sugar: 2 g/l
Total acidity: 7.8 g/l
