István on this wine: “In the ‘Riesling’ series in every vintage, we blend pure Riesling picked only in our special plot called ‘Templomdombi’. We harvest from our young plantation and blend the vessels that we won’t use for our single-vineyard wines. The cuvée has to represent our terroir, our philosophy perfectly, while being easygoing at the same time.”

Age of Vines: planted in 2015

Yields: 1kg/vine

Soil: dense basalt with some tuff, sandstone, brown forest soil

Vinification Method: Hand-picked grapes, pressed as whole clusters. Fermented in different types of amphoras and a 1500-L oval Slavonian oak barrel, then aged for 10 months on lees. Blended one month before bottling, then bottled without fining, filtration, and without added sulfur (total SO2 below 10ppm).
