A great example of an 'orange wine'. Slightly oxidative
and shot through with lime zest, chocolate, apricot and
smoke culminating in a long salty and flinty edge on the
finish.
Producer Note
The Majoros Family Estate is located in one of the most significant and renowned
communes of the Tokaj wine region, Tarcal, in a village situated at the base of
Mount Tokai. Currently six hectares of vines are cultivated. László Majoros is one of
the rising stars of Hungarian wine, producing some of the most talked about Furmints
around, made from grapes grown in the volcanic soils of Tokaj.
Vineyard
The grapes come from family's historical vineyard 'Deák', which is a 40 year old
plantation. The estate's vineyards are farmed using an organic and sustainable
approach, which results in relatively low yields. They do not use chemicals, sprays,
herbicides or fertilisers and these practices result in excellent quality fruit.
Winemaking
Only the free run juice was used, no press wine. The majority of the cuvées were
barrel-fermented using indigenous yeast, and subsequently received a relatively long
barrel aging. A smaller percentage of the cuvées were made without oak or air
contact. The blend was matured in new oak, imparting the flavours of vanilla,
chocolate and almonds. Lees stirring or 'bâtonnage' was used eight times during
the vinification, to add complexity and texture to the resulting wine. Each year, at
the time of harvest, barrel use is experimented with, along with the length of skin
contact time, fermentation on the skins and the use (or not) of filtering.
Tasting Note

mouthfeel and wonderful complexity, culminating in a long salty edge on the finish.
Serving Suggestion
Delicious with white meats, such as roast pork or chicken and dishes in rich buttery
sauces.
