Notes & Pairings

This is a vineyard near Szt. Márton-Kápolna (Saint Martin’s Chapel) on the Eastern side of Somló. It’s north of Fekete Béla, Apátsági and Kolonics and generally cooler than any other site we work with on the extinct volcano. Very little to no botrytis and not nearly as exposed as the southwestern side of the appellation. Grapes are foot tread and then basket pressed into 500L used oak for about 8 months. The combination of the cooler site and gentle pressing yield a refreshing side of Somló. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a touch of SO2 at bottling.
