Dr. Stumpf dry farms approximately 15 hectares of vines on the south facing hill of Eged. They are split between two vineyards with very similar conditions, Sik Dülö and EgedHegy Dülö or the Eged Hill Vineyard. Both are planted in almost pure limestone on a 20% grade situated about half way up the hill...the mid point of a hill or slope is an excellent location for angle to the sun. Aged in mostly large 500L barrels (3/4 new) which; allowes for very slow oxidation and a more nuanced influence of oak. After an average of 20 months in barrel, they are kept in separate lots until the final blend. All wines were bottled unfiltered and stored for a minimum of 1 year before release. Pairings; herbed pheasant, lamb, pungent creamy cheeses and whole grain based dishes like barley or faro. For the authentic experience, wild venison is recommended. — 3 years ago
