Taste and sensory characteristics:

Serving instructions:

Strongly cooled to a temperature of 9 °C, in goblets for white wine

Maturation in bottle:

Up to 5 years

Characteristics of the vintage:

We rate 2018 as above average, for two reasons. First of all, we picked grapes of above-average quality, all the parcels we picked reached the attribute quality. Harvesting sugar ranged from 21.5 ° NM to 32 ° NM. So we will have many choices of grapes or raisins. The second reason is truly above-average harvest, also in terms of volume. We have collected a record-high harvest and still have top quality.

The story of this wine:

CASSAVITA wine was created with the aim of returning the 14th century tradition whereby Košice had a monopoly of the wine trade. Later in the 16th century, Košice had its own vineyards in Tokaj. That's why we decided to bring back this tradition and symbolically hand over 1 hectare of vineyard to the city. From this land we produce CASSAVITA wine, which begins a new chapter for Košice wine. One euro from the sale of each bottle of this wine outside the volume destined for the City of Košice will be handed over to the restoration of the city's cultural monument.
