Absolute price-performance hammer - with insane ssss drinking flow and "bang the bottle is empty". That's why we've already given our tip: one bottle isn't enough. As we did last year Kristinus. visited, we already enjoyed Oliver to the fullest from the unlabeled bottle. We came up with our own name for this super tasty cuvée. He will always be "The Empty Bottle" for us. Why this name? You'll find that out for yourself very quickly.
In this incredibly well-rounded cuvée from Hungary, 2 grape varieties are combined that simply go well together. 80 % Isai Oliver meets 20 % Furmint – BAAAAAMMMM!
Oliver / The Empty Bottle 2021
The fun begins with an exotic nose - a fruit basket of scents fills the glass. After this olfactory experience, curiosity about the first sip is definitely aroused. From the very first lip contact with the glass. It quickly becomes clear that the smell has found its counterpart. Due to the fine tannins of the mash fermentation, the mega fruity nose is only reflected in the taste with a subtle fruity note. ”Which is exactly right!!”
Minerality, light bitter notes, salted almonds, pecan nuts, lime and a slight intensity combine here to create a complex, light orange wine with endless drinking flow.
Now there's no stopping!! And here again the TIP - One bottle is not enough - Maybe you can already imagine why it got the name "The Empty Bottle".
Enjoy it - CHEERS.
Many thanks to Florian Zaruba and his team for another great wine.
Spontaneous fermentation in separate vessels, Iris kept in tank for a few days on the skins, Furmint partly on the whole bunch in 500L barrels and amphorae. Then further aging on the fine lees, bottled, unfiltered and unfined, with a dash of so2.
