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.”
