A historical moment: the Kővágó dűlő being planted back on 15th May. It’ll be 3 hectares of Furmint and 0.5 hectare of Hárslevelű.
Another lot of ours offered for sale at the 2017 Tokaj Wine Auction (the other one being a Szamorodni 2015): a dry Furmint, vinified from the grapes of the bush vines on the high terraces of our Öreg Király vineyard. Made in steel.
Our Furmint 2013 rated 91 points and selected as Editor’s Choice in the May 2017 issue of Wine Enthusiast.
