A complex and layered Pinot Noir from winemaker Istvan Bencze in Hungary. Stewed, ripe red berry notes wih a herbal edge, earthy at first with incredible balance and delicate tannin.
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.
