Olaszrizling, Furmint, Traminer, and Hárslevelű
Half macerates on the skins, barreled in used oak.
Notes & Pairings
Ság is a small extinct volcano about 30 minutes northwest of Somló. Péter’s building a small press house here and is lucky to have acquired a 100+ year-old Gemischter Satz vineyard that's Olaszrizling heavy, but also has some Furmint, Traminer, and Hárslevelű. Fermented in open vats with a mixture of whole cluster and whole cluster pressed juice, about half gets some extra maceration on the skins before being barreled down to used oak for a year. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is the most textured of his whites and carries a heavy volcanic signature.
