Meszes Yellow Muscat 2013

Plantation: The grapes for our late-harvest Furmint come from a slope on the outskirts of Szegilong settlement. The largest contiguous area of our family estate with its excellent terroir can be found on the Hatalos slope steeply inclining towards the south-east, and due to its mineral-rich soil capable of producing high quality wines. The size of the plantation is 3 ha. Date of planting: 1998. Canopy management: mid-high cordon, 3-meter row distance, and 1-meter spacing between vines.

Winemaking-ripening: To preserve the value of the high quality grapes our wine is produced by using conventional methods. At our winery the harvest takes place in two phases. The harvest for our dry wines is in mid-October with only 1 or 2 grape clusters left on the vines for the second phase in November for our late-harvest wines. The crushing and destemming of the berries is followed by a 12-hour soaking period to maximize the sugar, flavor and aroma substance gained from the grapes. After a gentle pressing process the juice is fermented in oak barrels and ripened for about 4 to 5 months.
Wine details: Alcohol: 10,5% vol Sugar: 114 g/l Acid: 6 g/l Quantity: 800 bottles

The grapes for our late harvest wine were left on the vine until they reached 25-26 degrees brix. The wine is characterized by its extremely high sugar content, which is complemented nicely by its acidity, fruitiness and freshness. Hints of dense quince, apricot jam, and cinnamon can be discovered in the aroma. The characteristics of honey, propolis and grass appear in its taste according to the mood of the wine’s scent, backed up by the sufficient concentration of the body and the residual sugar.
