Vineyard: Sourced exclusively from Kiralyudvar's top vineyard, Lapis. Situated on a volcanic hill, this picturesque vineyard is comprised of rolling slopes and high terraces that reach elevations up to 230 meters. Below the terraces, early morning fog from the nearby Bodrog River creates a white canopy covering the lower vineyard during the autumn months.
Soil: Gray Clay, Brown Clay, White Rhyolite Tuff
Viticulture: Farmed biodynamically, all hand-harvested.
Vinification: Berries are gently pressed using precise techniques adapted from Kiralyudvar's sister French winery, Domaine Huet. They rely solely on local wild yeasts in the cellar to begin a controlled natural fermentation in 500 liter Hungarian oak barrels.
Aging: Aged 30 months in 2.25 hL Hungarian oak barrels.
