Kulcsár is situated at the foot of an ancient volcano where supposedly a large layer of lava flowed over. After millions of years of erosion, it’s extremely nutrient poor (little to no loam or humus), always gives a high extract and forces the roots to go deep. Planted 45 years ago, it was so rocky (tons of rhyolite) that the local wine council extracted stones to help build a local road.  Both the soil and the produced wine have a typical flint-like fragrance here.

100% Hárslevelű is sorted and then fermented slowly with native yeasts at uncontrolled temperatures in used 220L Hungarian oak.  The 2019 has a resulting alcohol of 13%, and balances the residual sugar of 6,8g/l with 5.7 g/l acidity.

Notes of honey, flint, yellow peach, and white pepper. Full bodied and rich with texture.
