AREA: Slikker, Nagykút, Hegyalja, Kishegy, Berekhát (Csopak)
PROTECTION OF ORIGIN: Balatonfüred-Csopak OEM
WINEMAKING AND STYLE:
Our aim is to restore the character of the Csopak Olaszrizling year by year in a wine in which the fruit of the vineyards with red sandstone and marly soil appears at the same time.
In 2018 we harvested the olaszrizling grapes at different times to preserve acidity and reach enough sugar level as well, to be able to give back the character of Csopak.
We fermented separately from different areas in steel tanks and blended as wine in March of the following year. The multi-stage harvest was a guarantee of a harmonious result.
Stony aromas with pears, apples, nuts, bitter almonds, nice bottle ripeness. Recognizably „csopaki”: citrus and apple aromas at a young age ripened into almond and marzipan flavors after a few years of bottle maturation.
