2021 Maurer 'Orion' Serbian White Blend

2021 Maurer 'Orion' Serbian White Blend

Mézes Fehér, literally, “honey white” is able to contract a ton of botrytis without dropping acidity. Sourced entirely from the Krisztus vineyard in the Fruška Gora, this vineyard was completely forested with virgin soils when Oszkár purchased it in 2006. It’s still surrounded by forest and riddled with seashells and sand overlying volcanic bedrock. Oftentimes this wine can develop under flor and have over the top botrytis. This time, while the botrytis wasn’t super high, the health of the crop was fantastic and allowed for 14 days of skin contact, zero flor, and then aged for 12 months in barrel and a small fraction in clay amphora as well. This vintage also has about 35% of Furmint which adds some acidity and structure. Aromatically pretty neutral, so the Mézes is still dominant. This is a genus of the skin contact world that isn’t found anywhere else. Bottled by gravity, unfiltered, and with zero additions. Danch & Granger Selections
