It is a really complex wine: 3 parcels, 3 different soils, 3 harvests to show all the colors of this magical region. Fermentation in vats and partially in barrels.

Characteristic with the summer apple reminding us of sunshine and romance. Mineral, slightly bitter with a touch of spearmint – keeping the wine vivid. A hint of coriander with some citrus notes. Stunning, long aftertaste. Definitely, one of the best Olasz of this summer.

Alföldi Merlot 2019. december:

In less than a month I have tasted this wine three times and on each occasion I thought to myself „this is better than any previous vintage”. It might even be the prettiest olaszrizling I have ever come across. The third bottle was opened next to some German Rieslings and an excellent Picpoul de Pinet and even in this elevated company it more than held its own.

Olaszrizling is not an aromatic variety but this is a wine with a rich, lifted and expressive nose offering hints of chamomile, gooseberries, peach, celery stalk and tropical fruit. The intensity of the nose is carried on to a palate with splendid balance, juicy and fresh displaying the most beguiling peach compote aromas. Textbook acidity provides drive and verve. The finish is once again rich and juicy with a bit of tannic grip. The winemaker, Bálint Földi should definitely be nominated for the „Young Winemaker of the Year” award.
