Hárslevelű and Juhfark skin macerated for 5 days then blended with fresh Furmint.
Notes & Pairings
The Garam River is one of the defining influences on the wines. Granum derives from the Latin, so Super Granum is essentially a super estate blend. The Hárslevelű and Juhfark are both macerated separately on the skins for 5 days, then blended with fresh whole cluster pressed Furmint in barrel. They age together in barrel for 1.5 years. The skin contact is more for texture and aromatics than heavy tannins or oxidation. The Furmint is the acid driver and brings overall levity to the blend. It drinks almost like a Riesling at first in terms of acidity and stoniness, but the skin contact adds weight where sugar would normally be the balance.
