220L Hungarian Oak with native yeast
Notes & Pairings
Closer to Erdőbénye, the Határi vineyard is along the same slopes bordering the Zemplèn forest as the Csontos vineyards, but are instead more western than southern facing. With only 1.5 hectare currently cultivated, the soil is clayey and chock-full of broken up limestone, rhyolite-tufa, and obsidian. Tending to the 35 years-old vines by hand, the Furmint produces wonderfully full-bodied dry wines with plenty of minerality and acidity. Thin-skinned and late ripening, Hárslevelű is the delicately perfumed counterpart part to furmints more strong-armed acidity and spice. Pair this cuvée with rich, spicy Asian dishes.
