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.
