Tasting notes - A great example of an 'orange wine'. A dry wine, which is slightly oxidative in style and shot through with vanilla, chocolate, apricot and smoke. This has a textured mouthfeel and wonderful complexity, culminating in a long salty edge on the finish.

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.
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.
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.
