'A lovely hint of rhubarb, some soft peach and apricot with some honey coming along. Very tasty.'

The winery is situated in the ancient town of Mád and there are eight hectares under vine in the “Grand Cru” Kiraly and Betsek areas, planted to Furmint, Harslevelu (Lindenleaf) and Muscat. It is owned by cellist Andras Bruhacs and two German fellow classical musicians. The vines average age is around 30 years old, producing extremely low yields. Imre Galambosi, as well as being our winemaker, was also mayor for a span of eight years. He‘s no longer mayor, but we are happy to say that he is still managing the winery. He eschews modern, high-tech methods and relies on traditional vinification and barrel ageing.

TECH: Late Harvest – A botrytised sweet wine, with 117 g/l residual sugar and 6.1 g/l acidity, made from 65% Furmint, 30% Lindenleaf & 5% Muscat.
