Tasting Notes

Pale green in colour with an intense nose. Fresh, with notes of gooseberry, pear and lime. which follow through on the palate. Dry and beautifully crisp with an elegant minerality which keeps the wine in balance.

Producer details

This winery is tiny and family owned, steeped in history, from Tokaj - the oldest classified wine region in Europe (1737), Furmint grape variety specialists, and just all round nice people. Located in the crazy sounding village of Mád (regarded as Tokaj's most important and prestigious wine area), the vineyards have been in the family for centuries, however, the opportunity to build the Kardos winery was only possible after the Central and Eastern Europe revolution of 1989. From humble beginnings of selling wines from their cellar door and to local bars, this boutique winery started to get more serious when the owners son, Gábor Jnr. came on board full time in 2008.

In the vineyard

Production From 20 year old vines grown in the south facing Arany Sajgó vineyard on volcanic white zeolite soil.

In the winery

Grapes are manually harvested and fast crushing and destemming takes place within hours of harvesting. Grapes are gently pressed in a pneumatic press, controlled fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks where natural Tokaji yeast is added. Wine is aged in stainless stell tanks for three months with battonage once a week.

Food Recommendations

Perfect as an apertif, or try with seafood linguine, salads and cheese.
