THE VINEYARD

This wine is a blended from grapes grown on Degenfeld’s best plots: Borkút, Galambos, Terézia, and Zomborka. The bedrock is rhyolite tuff and topsoil varies from brown forest soil and loess with a touch of clay loam.

VINTAGE AND HARVEST

Winter was relatively mild, coupling average rainfall was with fluctuating temperatures. Due to unusually low temperatures in March plus high morning humidity and a bit of draught, spring was marked by the onset of powdery mildew. Precipitation during the first half of June caused irregular berry setting and somewhat low yields. Annual rainfall was of average quantity but uneven distribution. Berries were hand-selected to ensure high quality for this dry low-alcohol wine with vigorous acids.
