Type: Red Wine
This is the oldest known vineyard of Kadarka in the world. Planted in Pannonian sand, bush trained, and surrounded by fruit trees, they look like old hands reaching out of quicksand. Organic and only farmed by human and horse. Oszkár Maurer also believes that constant selection massale is they key to Kadarka. It needs to be tweaked and worked on like a high performance race car. The clones here are thicker skinned than the rest of his Kadarka, and there’s a little Vadfekete in the vineyard as well (botrytis resistant and dark berry).
Fermented with native yeast in open vats, barreled down to old Hungarian oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. It smells and tastes like fall, has a botrytis affected nose, bone dry, lively acidity, and is truly one of the most unique red wines we have tasted. Very limited production.
