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.  

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