“The fruit was really beautiful in ’17.” It has the classic Nobilis style, a lean and delicate palate, soft acids, linear character and a subtly stony, floral nose. The finish of the palate is closed by the 4 grams of sugar and the vibrant minerality of the vineyard.
This is a stunning dry from Tokaj, made entirely from Hárslevelű. It comes from a 2 hectare single vineyard called "Barakonyi", classified as premier cru in 1737. Fermented in 220L Hungarian oak barrels, using native yeast. Then aged for 6 months with 5 months on the lees.
Because Hárslevelű is more loosely bunched than Furmint, it is less susceptible to Botrytis and is increasingly used on its own as a pure dry varietal white. Where many dry Tokaji wines are acid driven, Nobilis wines are intensely mineral driven. Rich mouth feel, seemingly dry despite its residual sugar, and once given the chance to open up, incredibly distinct. There’s also an amazing sweet and sour quality that lends itself to foods that play off of the same theme.
