AREA: Aranyház (Tihany)
PROTECTION OF ORIGIN: Balatonfüred-Csopak OEM
WINEMAKING AND STYLE:
In the high-temperature, windy areas of Tihany, Kékfrankos is the number one variety. Our plantations on the crater walls around the Outer and Inner Lakes give exciting, cool-tempered Kékfrankos year by year, and we try to convey the special harmony of the microclimate, the soil and the variety through the wines.
One of the barrels filled with the fruit of Aranyház single-vineyard was not blended into the Magma selection in 2018, but we decided to show the difference between the character of the two areas, Aranyház and Ráta single-vineyards, just as the wines made from them.
Aranyház is more concentrated, firmer wine, thanks to the older plantation. Herbal and spicy notes, menthol and anise in the nose and on the palate. Its character is more layered, more compact, more stocky, than Ráta’s.
