Notes & Pairings

An admitted ode to Tom Petty’s “Southern Accents,” this is another collaboration with some organically sourced Hárslevelű from the Mátra appellation – hence the multiple “accents” from two appellations in the East. The blend is 70% of the Mátrai Hárslevelű with 5 days of skin contact along with her own Királyleányka from Barabás with 2 weeks semi-carbonic maceration. The sum is punched down a few times a day for 2 weeks keeping as many of the grapes intact as possible. Tons of fruit, aromatics and acidity. Has a wild edge but coaxed into balance and simply lovely to drink.
