" Come and experience the purity of the fruit, the great terroir, and the complexity of our wines, because, I believe, Tokaj has them all. For me it all started with my grandparents. Then, in 2005, I had the chance to take over the estate and I did not hesitate to do so. It's been a great journey. My motto is quality over quantity, no matter what. To meet these standards, I produce limited quantities to show the incredible terroir of Tokaj and want to get better and better every year. Please, join me through this adventure. " Laszlo Szilagyi owner and winemaker
This is one of the favourite vineyard of Laszlo and other than two tiny parcel, he owns the entire Grand Cru site. East of the Deak and Barat Grand Cru vineyards, this vineyard always produced some of the best wines of the winery.

50% Furmint with 50% Harslevelu, used oak only gives a gentle touch to the wine - very Burgundy in style: full of energy, minerality and rich, tasty, yellow fruit with a lengthy finish. Brilliant wine.
