The Lapis Vineyard is near the town of Bodrogkeresztúr and looks down onto the Bodrog River and its floodplains. Despite being near to all of this moisture, Botrytis only hits certain parts of the vineyard. The 1,8 ha that they farm is 155m up and in a breezy spot making dry wines possible. The soil is a mixture of rhyolite with strong brown clay soil and tufa. If there were to be reclassification of the Tokaj vineyards, this would be a strong contender for a Great Growth. The 2017 Lapis Furmint fresh and botrytis affected-free fruit managed to ferment in small barrel. It’s all at once pure, bright and fresh, and dense with peach flavors and salty minerality and the perfume of barrel aging give perfect frame for the wine. Beguiling vintage and delicious!
