This dessert wine is made of Furmint and Muscat grapes (in German called Gelber Muskateller), and in some way it may recall Hungarian sweet wines from Tokaji region, although here the winemaking style is similar to the grand wines of Germany or Sauternes.
The grapes for this wine have been hand selected and picked after they were completely affected by botrytis and almost dry as raisins. They were foot trodden and then pressed in an old manual basket press. Slow fermentation in a new barrel during 8 months with a further aging in an old one for 22 months more.
Only 1200 375 ml bottles were filled of this unique 2007 vintage.
This is a true sweet elixir with a mindblowing acidity.
For wine-tech geeks: 9,5º alcohol, 265 g/l residual sugar, 9,1 g/l acidity.
