Préselő Borhaz Tokaj Furmint
Tasting Notes: Greenish, lemon-yellow colored wine. Its intense pear and peach aromas are well completed by the sour citruses, barrel spices and salty minerality characteristic to Tokaj wine region. This is an elegant and harmonic wine with dynamic acid, good balance and a lingering aftertaste.
About the winery: Founded in 2013, Préselő refers to an industrial heritage, a centenarian double-press found in the former vinery house. Winemakers Zsolt Nagy and his wife Árpád had been working previously in different fields, but their commitment and wine enthusiasm led them to build an 8 hectare vineyard estate around Erdőbénye. In the heart of this small picturesque village, they hit upon an old house with a 200 years old cellar serving today as a center of the estate. After much hard work, the winery has been established, and together with the vineyards, cellar and guesthouse, the estate has come into its own.
About the winemaking: Due to the unique soil structure and microclimate of the wine region, they managed to harvest fully ripened and healthy grapes at the end of September in the relatively warm year. Messzelátó vineyard, the plot where the grape comes from, is an isolated area surrounded by forest, where the vines are cultivated using natural methods and bio cultivation, without applying chemicals. It was made of 100% of Furmint variety, the majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel, while the remaining part fermented and aged in barrels.
