The grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation took place using natual yeasts in three and four year old Hungarian oak barrels of 300-500 litre capactiy. After undergoing battonage, or stirring of the lees, for a period of six months it was aged for one year before bottling.

The Domaine
Grapes were grown in the 30 year old vineyards of Betsek and Szent Tamás in Mád. Both vineyards are planted with three of the permitted Tokaj grape varieties - Furmint, Harslevelú and Muscat Lunel, although for this wine, only Furmint was used. Yields were restricted using short spur pruning which ensured that the vines did not yield more than one kilogram of fruit per vine. Soils in this area are volcanic.
