”Homok” means “sand” in Hungarian, symbolizing both the type of soil that this wine is born from and the important historical role of Hungarian culture in this border region.
Grapes: 40% Grüner Veltliner, 40% Weissburgunder, 20% Sauvignon Blanc
Cellar: all grapes are hand-picked and processed as whole bunches in the old screw press. No additives, no temperature control at any stage of winemaking. Juice goes straight into stainless steel + large acacia + oak barrels (2000L) + fiberglass tanks. All vats are racked once before the spontaneous fermentation kicks in. All 3 varietals (Grüner + Weissburgunder + Sauvignon Blanc) were mostly co-fermented. Everything aged on gross lees for 6 months without any additives. Bottled in February without fining, filtration, or SO2.
Personality: easy breezy with nice energy coming from the old vines. The holiday feel depicted on the label (imagine standing at the vineyard site & looking at the lake) continues inside the bottle as well – think sun, mango, citrus, and careless fun.
