„First of all Badacsony stands above everything, it looks to the Balaton, its exposure is towards the sun, its soil is the best in every aspect to make wines, so to say it was created for that….”, 1858, Antal Gyürky
This Kéknyelű is also a family member in our single vineyard selection series. The southern slope of Badacsony hill is the most of all: the steepest, the hottest and for us also the most beautiful in the region. It must have not been just us thinking this way, as once this was the centre of the Europe famous Bogyay Estate. Now it gives home to the Laposa Wine Terrace.
100 years ago, it was all traditionally cultivated and when we bought the land left by the state farm it was a continuous shrubbery. We have planted our first vines in 1992. Now only hand cultivated grapes can be found here on micro terraces with Pinot Grigio, Welschriesling and Kéknyelű.
The sunshine reflecting from Lake Balaton and the balance effect of the night temperature help to keep the acidity, while the basalt stones give an unmistakable taste and aroma to our God’s Steep Kéknyelű. When young it is flowery after ageing yellow fruits appear on the nose. A real curiosity straight from Badacsony!
