Localization: Tokaj, Hungary
Tasting notes: Introduces fresh, ripe pure notes, honey, floral fragrant, lime peel, and a touch of elderflower. A palate of white peach and tropical aromas followed by a silky lingering finish. Easy-drinking wine for a good summertime.
The Domain: The name of their winery, Carpinus (Latin for hornbeam, the English translation of the Hungarian name), is after Gyertyános, their largest current vineyard. They have had the opportunity to work and gain experience at leading wineries in and outside Hungary during their lives, which they can put to good use in their family winery. It is their goal for Carpinus Winery to be an example of a Tokaj winery that with top quality work and family cooperation, without compromise, can run sustainably and build a stable position in the world wine market. Continuing local values established by families from the wine region is of particular importance to us.
Their vineyards are located in the Tokaj Wine Region: Gyertyános, Lapis, Deák, Budaházy, Poklos, Veresek és Dereszla vineyards. Their vineyards were classed first and second growths according to the historical classifications. They work with Autochthonous varieties and place the greatest emphasis on Furmint.
Their expectations of themselves are that by making the very best wine possible, they can present the natural assets and varieties of the varied terroirs of the Tokaj Wine Region. They strive to cultivate our crops with environmentally friendly cultivation practices. The individual attributes of the vineyards (soils, aspect, microclimate) are expressed through their single-vineyard wines. Their wines are characteristically fresh, elegant and harmonious, and to be enjoyed.
