Notes & Pairings

The Hetény Dűlő, first mentioned in 1298, is in the southwest corner of Tállya and has a cooler east facing disposition. Mostly Rhyolite but with much more clay and a little bit of loess, this site throws a lot of acidity, even for Tokaj. Not surprisingly, this is the largest fruit source for her sparkling production. The 2019 was pressed without destemming or crushing, fermented and aged in stainless steel, and bottled unfined/unfiltered with around 10ppm total SO2. The acidity of the Furmint can be so rigid here, that it’s no wonder that Hárslevelű is co-planted to help temper the overall character. Although Furmint is dominant at around 70%, 100% would be a tad violent. We don’t yet know how these wines will age, but our money is on this one for sure.
