Quite unlike any Pinot Noir we have tasted before. Bencze Birtok’s wines are mystical, unusual and harmonious all at once.

The grapes for this cuvée have been carefully selected from the lower parts of the vineyard. 20% of the crop was whole bunches that was crushed by feet straight away and 80% was gently de-stemmed. During the fermented in open vats for 10 days the cap was gently punched down by hand and feet twice a day for a moderate extraction. Transferred by gravity to stainless steel tanks where it stays on the lees for 10 month. Bottled unfined, unfiltered with the addition of 10mg of SO2 before bottling.

2019 was a moderate – cool vintage. The mild conditions during the ripening season resulted in high acidity and a delicate body.

The vineyards are situated on the Szent György hill, in Badacsony, north of the lake Balaton, on south-east facing slopes at 118 to 180 meters altitude. The soil is made up mainly from volcanic basalt with a mix of clay, loess and sand.

In the cellar, István likes to take a step back and let the wines ferment spontaneously mainly in amphoras. He prefers not to use any additives in order to preserve the original personality of the varieties and the unique minerality of the volcanic soil.

The main goal at Bencze Birtok is to make wines that show the most of their terroir. István believes that the most essential moment is the picking time. It often happens that a wine is a result of five different harvest dates in order to achieve the desired balance.
