Zomborka lies on the southeastern slopes of Mád Hill. Topsoil is brown forest loam with volcanic rhiolyte tuff for bedrock. This plot lies 170 yards above see level. About 12 acres of Furmint vines were replanted in 2001 and 2002 at 2×1 yards row and vine spacing. Overall, these grapes are at just the right age to produce the highest quality crop.
VINTAGE AND HARVEST
2015 was an excellent vintage for dry and late harvest wines, with generally warm and dry conditions prevailing in Mád and Tarcal. The challenge was timing harvest so as to maximize ripeness and fruit intensity, avoid loss of acidity and high pH, and to promote optimum potential alcohol levels. This was successfully achieved, than usual. This vintage yielded wines that are fully ripe and rich, forward in style, with well-balanced acidity and a marked depth of flavor.
