Our first estate wine, from our second vintage. A light, pronounced, mineral wine that exudes tons of fruit.
Rich and fresh Sauvignon Blanc from the northern slopes of Szent György Hill. Fermented in temperature-controlled tanks.
Riesling’s trademark elegance paired with Szent György Hill’s characteristic complexity.
The loveliest Riesling of an excellent vintage, fermented and aged in oak, with enormous ageing potential.
Sauvignon Blanc aged in barrels and on fine lees, instead of being made in tanks. A real speciality.
The Bohém Cuvée is made from the winery’s most typical varieties. The Riesling and Olaszrizling backbone is spiced up by Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Gris. The composition of the blend had been fixed in our minds from the start, yet we pondered over the name for a lot longer. This is the first vintage of Bohém, but we’re certain that we’re going to make it plenty more times.
750 ml 12,5 % Alk.
“It is coloured by all the varieties of the estate: Riesling, Pinot Gris, Olaszrizling and Sauvignon Blanc. Discreet hay, grass and vegetal aromas, with both Sauvignon and Olaszrizling notes dazzling under the surface. On the palate, it’s fresh, smooth, light, with possibly the Olaszrizling gaining more prominence. Mineral, salty aftertaste. It’s still very fresh throughout. An easy-going, citrusy white wine from Szent György Hill.”
“A flavoursome, pure and intense estate wine from a blend of Riesling, Olaszrizling, Pinot Gris and a touch of Sauvignon Blanc. It’s tasty and mineral with fresh acidity. The larger part is reductive, the smaller part fermented and aged in 500-litre barrels.”
“It appears to be a distinctive and juicy wine, even from the first sniff. It seems to be led by the Riesling, or rather a kind of Pannonian Riesling, but it only colours the yellow plum, citrus nose with a floral touch.
There’s a smidgen of oak on the palate which could even be too much in such a young wine. It offers great value for money, although it’s powered by 2013’s typical rawness and not particularly enjoyable pronounced and slightly sharp acidity (even if it makes the wine lively and intense). We should wait with it as time might round it out a bit.
PS: imaginative label, pretty bottle. It would be even cooler with screw cap.”
Sauer macht lustig. Sauer mag man bei Gilvesy offenbar. Der reinsortige 12er Riesling trieb mir seinerzeit den Spaß aus. Der hier, kommt viel eher wie ein Sauvignon blanc daher, ist aber eine Cuvée, in der zwar Blanc drin ist, aber nur zu einem kleinen Anteil. Mehrheitlich reduktiv ausgebaut. Sauer ist dies jedenfalls. Aber von der Sorte: animierend, wie man ja so gerne im Weindeutsch von sich gibt. Kühl im Glas, mit Gras und grünen Kräutern und frisch angeschnittenen Zitrusfrüchten, wobei die Moleküle der Schale vom Anschnitt noch in der Luft zu liegen scheinen.
Knackig am Gaumen, mit sehr frischem, klarem, direktem und überdominantem Säurezug. Limetten, Zitronen, etwas Orangen auch, Grapefruit in jedem Fall und nicht zu knapp. Und eine grüne Unterlage auf metallenem Grund gebettet. Das zieht sich durch als konstanter Strang, mit ernster Miene, fast militärisch streng. Aperitif-artig. Kurz und knack. Eher für den Sommer, aber er lief auch jetzt gut.
“A birtok valamennyi fajtája színezi: sauvignon, pinot gris, olaszrizling, sauvignon blanc.
Visszafogott illat: széna, fű, vegetális jegyek, egyszerre sauvignonos és olaszrizlinges jegyek villanak meg a felszín alatt. Ízre nagyon friss, sima, könnyed, itt talán inkább az olaszrizling kap nagyobb szerepet. Ásványos, sós utóíz. Elejétől a végéig nagyon friss még. Laza, citrusos szentgyörgyhegyi fehérbor.”
Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Zesty, exciting and aromatic. This is what Sauvignon Blanc from the volcanic soils of Szent György Hill can do when fermented in steel tanks with cultured yeast and aged on fine lees. The aim wasn’t just to make a wine with good drinkability but one with personality, too.
750 ml 12,8 % Alk.
“Fresh, elegant Sauvignon Blanc from the northern slopes of Szent György Hill, from 35-year-old vines, fermented in temperature-controlled tanks, inoculated with two different kinds of yeast. Ripe fruit, nice minerality, rich and vivacious palate. It calls for the summer.”
“A touch of spice, white-fleshed fruits, sweet apple aromas. Lively acidity, discernible but not exaggerated presence of barrel, with a touch of oak, nuts, citrus, white-fleshed fruits, some green herbs and a minerality. ”
Rajnai Riesling 2013
Rajnai Riesling 2013
The fruit of the Tarányi vineyard is complemented by that of the newly-producing Váradi vineyard, which also comprises Riesling for the most part. This variety has found an excellent partner in the Szent György Hill, which conveys its elegant and volcanic traits perfectly. It is dominated by flavours of ripe fruits and mineral saltiness.
750 ml 13 % Alk.
“The warmth and basalt minerality of Szent György Hill’s southern slopes, with long acidity and explosive fruitiness. Half made in tank, the other half in barrel. Long, refreshingly crispy.”
Spicy aromas with summer apple, white-fleshed fruits. Fairly full but also dense, with good acidity, and pronounced but quality oak.
A bor meg én
An extremely pure, focused nose that exudes fruit (pear, peach, citrus fruit), on which minerality also intensely appears. It is characterised by pronounced acidity, medium-plus body and medium alcohol. A razor-sharp wine with excellent structure and great potential.
A fresh Badacsony Riesling with subtle petrol and fresh aromas. Oily but light, bitter and varietally pure. It’s easy to imagine as outstanding summer refreshment.
Tarányi Rajnai Rizling Reserve
The must of the most beautiful bunches from the south-facing Tarányi vineyard was put into two 500-litre oak barrels where following fermentation, the wine was aged for 6 months. The 3 g/l of residual sugar that remained after fermentation nicely rounds out the finish of the palate. A zesty, complex wine with vibrant acidity and excellent ageing potential.
750 ml 12,5 % Alk.
“The aromas imply a denser than usual wine, with subtle oak and minerality. In the background lurk flowers, a touch of petrol and a lively, vibrant palate. It was spontaneously fermented in two 500-litre Kádár barrels and aged on fine lees for 7 months”
A bor meg én
“Riesling grown on the clayish basalt and tufa soil of the Szent György Hill’s Tarányi vineyard, fermented spontaneously in barrel and then spending 8 months on fine lees. Beside the white-fleshed fruits, vanilla and lots minerality appear on the palate. A very balanced palate with vibrant, lively acidity and pronounced alcohol. A tiny bit of residual sugar makes it balanced. Tons of minerals, citrus, pear, peach and vanilla lead the palate. Long finish. An excellent wine with long ageing potential.”
Mogyorós Sauvignon Blanc 2013
The winery’s first single vineyard-selected Sauvignon Blanc from the Mogyorós vineyard. In addition to the fruity reductive style that’s well known in Hungary, we also wished to create a really full-bodied, complex wine from the variety and one that’s capable of showing the place of growth’s characteristics. Only 600 bottles were made of this distinctive wine.
750 ml 12,7 % Alk.
“A yellow colour of medium intensity with greenish tints. A medium intense, slightly aromatic nose that is reminiscent of green apple and somewhat like gooseberry. Alongside the fruity aromas, some toasty and spicy aromas can also be picked up from the barrel ageing. With its full and rich palate, this is a layered and flavoursome wine with good intensity and length. The fresh acidity is in balance with the ripe fruit. A complex, well made and truly delicious wine.”
“Delicious, oaky aromas and a rich, mineral, medium-bodied palate with good acidity. Elegant, fresh, minty Sauvignon Blanc nose and a harmonious palate with vibrant acidity. A juicy, aromatic, spontaneously-fermented, vineyard-selected wine aged on the lees, from the romance between a 500-liter barrel and a tank.”
