The Estate Furmint is a blend coming from our Nagykút, Szitahegy and Hegyalja vineyards. The three Furmint plantations together cover less than 5 acres with an average age of 15 years on a medium steep slope, facing Lake Balaton in the south. The bedrock is part of the typical clay-limestone „Csopak Marlstone Formation“ (márga) with crushed marl subsoil and a mineral rich clay-loess mixture on the top.
VINTAGE AND HARVEST
2014 was a cool vintage with heavy rainfalls during the blooming season in June and before the harvest period in September. The grapes faced high water stress. We made multiple bunch selections, which resulted low yields. We harvested good quality crop with high, but ripe acidity. Hand-picking in 3 steps, from middle of September to middle of October, with yields less than 1 kg/vine.
