Bencze Birtok - Hegymagas, Hungary
100% Chenin Blanc - 11.5% abv
The vines were planted in 2014, certified organic, biodynamically cultivated since the beginning. Basalt, clay and sandstone soil.
Hand-harvested whole clusters are pressed to 330 litre terracotta amphoras and 300 litre used oak barrels. After resting in amphora and barrel for 11 months, the wine is bottled without fining or filtration and zero sulfur is added.
Highly recommend trying this unique style of Chenin Blanc. Experience a fullness in the mouth from time spent in oak and a salty freshness from the amphora. Herbaceous elements come through on the palate.
Decant before serving. This wine still tastes great the next day. Pair with an asparagus dish.
