Notes & Pairings

Half of the 2019 was made using the hamburger method (open vat fermented for a week in three layers: foot trodden, whole clusters, and destemmed), and the other half was whole bunch pressed and aged 1 year in Hungarian oak. It was then blended together and bottled without filtering and fining. Perhaps the lightest of the lineup in terms of skin maceration, but super creamy without being leesy, acid driven and elegant. Olaszrizling shows great fidelity to place. This wine makes it crystal clear where you are and what you’re drinking.
