2021 Maurer '1880' Kadarka

2021 Maurer '1880' Kadarka

The 1880 vineyard is the oldest known vineyard of Kadarka in the world. Planted in Pannonian sand, bush trained, and surrounded by fruit trees, they look like old hands reaching out of quicksand. Only farmed by hand and horse. Similar to the 1912 planting, this site has undergone generations of massale selection that has resulted in very thick skins which is rare for Kadarka. According to Oszkár, it needs to be constantly tweaked and worked on like a high performance race car. There’s also a little Vadfekete in the vineyard (botrytis resistant and dark berry) as well. Fermented with native yeast in open vat, barreled down to old Hungarian oak, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. This wine has an intense concentration of flavor and advanced texture for its age. This is markedly more expensive, but only made in select vintages and is the pride and joy of the estate Danch & Granger Selections
