This white wine is from a limited release of 3,200 bottles, hand-harvested from vineyards on volcanic basalt soils on the slopes of Somlo Hill. Low-yielding and concentrated, the grapes are gently crushed with four hours' skin contact before wild fermentation in 1000L Hungarian oak casks. It is then matured for a further 12 months in barrel and five years in stainless steel before bottling. The resulting wine is an intense, textured and racy white wine with smoky, honeyed pear fruit, floral and honey aromas, and a smooth, long finish.
Pairs beautifully with: Paprika-spiced chicken stews, blue cheese stuffed in portobello mushroom, or mackerel.
Cheese pairing: Blue cheese, or soft pongy cheese like Époisses.
