Ancient dormant volcanoes characterized by limestone, rhyolite and tufa (volcanic sediments)
Aged 20 months in 500L Hungarian Oak Barrel
Notes & Pairings
Our last visit was in the Spring of 2019. Péter explained where they’ve been narrowing down the limestone rich parcels (higher extract, more body) and the more volcanic parcels (higher acidity and less body) and finding balance. Partially aged in the new cellar, which hasn’t yet developed the dense mold of the older cellar, also played a factor with more angel’s share and a cooler temperature. It’s dense but refreshing, and has enough texture to handle richer foods. Have some Pacalpörkölt (fatty tripe stew). This is just what you need in order to survive/enjoy it.
