Bencze Birtok - Hegymagas, Hungary
100% Riesling - 11.5% abv
For the 'Riesling' series in every vintage Bencze blends pure Riesling picked only from their special plot called 'Templomdombi'. They then harvest from both their young plantation of 2015 and also from their oldest vineyard planted in 1976.
After whole-cluster pressing and one-night sedimentation it was fermented in amphoras and aged for 10 months on the lees. It's blended one month before bottling and then bottled without fining, filtration or added sulfur.
This Riesling is stunning and exceptionally different from what you might believe a Riesling should taste like. Extremely bold with elegant acidity and a tropical and honey glaze finish.
Decant before serving. This wine still tastes great the next day.
