2020 Sziegl Jónás White Blend
The 2020 Jónás is their inaugural white village blend. A sibling to the red Bábel. The first layer is 55% whole cluster Olaszrizling from both the Herreberg and Hársfás-út vineyards fermented in tank. The next layer is 10% Rajani Rizling from the Csákányos fermented whole cluster and another 10% with 2 days skin contact in 500L oak. Next comes 20% Hárslevelű from the Herreberg vineyard fermented for 4 days in the Hamburger method (semi-carbonic). The final component is about 5% Tramini from Hársfás-út fermented in 500L oak. Everything is aged around 6 months and then blended. Bottled unfined and unfiltered with a small addition of SO2 (15ppm). Much like the Bábel, which is someplace in between a rosé and a light red, the Jónás is someplace in between a skin contact and full bodied/bright white.
