Our Notes: Határi, literally “at-the-border” is right on the cusp between the villages of Erdőbénye and Olaszliszka in the geographic center of the Tokaj appellation. The soils on Határi have a 15 million year old volcanic base (tuffa, obsidian) plus broken up limestone and clay. With 10,000 plants per hectare (90% Furmint, 10 % Hárslevelű) and most with 90 years of age or more, no herbicides, pesticides, or tractors are used. Everything is done by hand or horse. Among all of Tinon’s dry wines, this one is the driest, freshest, and yet some how it achieves a silkiness that falsely implies residual sugar. Perhaps it’s the old vines achieving balance, perhaps it’s the intensely volcanic soils, or the right grape in the right place, but this is one of Tinon's most elegant and piercing Furmints.

89 Points Wine Enthusiast Magazine for the 2016: “Hailing from the hilltop Határi vineyard, this wine has a delightful aroma of freshly pickled lemons and grapefruit leaf. In the mouth, it is creamy and full bodied with flavors of white peach, curd and grapefruit.”
