Dark golden color resulting from 8 days fermentation on skin, spent 24 months in barrel, aged with batonnage technique. Very natural. Delightful notes of Harslevelu flower on the nose. Delicate structure, smooth and balanced, with long finish.

When first meeting the soft spoken and thoughtful Tamás Pók it would be easy to mistake him for a cautious winemaker, but underneath his modest exterior lies one of Hungary’s most experienced and innovative wine talents. Beginning his career at the then state run Egervin, and later honing his craft in California, along with a six year stint at the Kecskemét Research Institute before heading up the Antinori funded Hungarian project Eurobor, Pók has always been at the forefront of the Hungarian wine revival. A true genius with grapes, which should come as no surprise considering he began his career as an ampelographer, Pók is a firm believer in the classic blended wine of Eger Bikavér along with the resurrection of the native varietals of Leáynka and Zengö. These days Pók is a full-fledged member of the Terra Hungarica movement, which is committed to organic viticulture and natural winemaking. Walking into Pók’s cellar in the hills outside of Eger is like walking into Hungary’s illustrious past, here you will find no fancy winemaking equipment, no commercial yeast, and certainly no wine critics stopping by. What you will find is a kind and remarkable man following his life’s passion, making honest and memorable wines.
