Serving instructions:

Cooled to a temperature of 9 - 11 °C, in goblets for white wine

Maturation in bottle:

2 to 5 years

Characteristics of the vintage:

We limed our vineyards with dolomitic limestone to support the distinctive structure and mineral content of the resulting wine. The 2016 season was characterized by high rainfall. The grapes had a distinctive acid, which helped us create juicy-tasting wines. The sugar-free extract this season was more than 29 g.

The story of this wine:

This is the highest yielding Tokaj variety. The wine is typical for its higher acid content and fruitful freshness. This gives it structure and long life. The grape is ideal for making botrytized grapes. The grape variety comes from Italy and is said to be a distant relative of the Chardonnay variety.
