Our Notes: This is a brand new project for Stéphanie. Over time she’s come to believe that the best way to capture the “Kikelet,” meaning “spring,” is to blend Furmint, Hárslevelű, and Kövérszőlő when possible. Her style is already more or less based on short macerations, no crushing, and not racking until bottling. This 2016 was fermented in barrel, aged 5 months, and then kept fresh under screw cap. This “Origo” is a pure look at the origin of what she loves about her terroir and the kind of acid and soil driven wines she loves. Straight on the palate with an elegant structure, this wine is built on the refreshing, taut acidity of the vintage; it feels almost bone dry. Citrus, lime and pomelo take the lead, complemented by a slight mintiness, along with some green apple and peach.
