Kikelet Hárslevelű

Kikelet Pince was founded in 2002 by Stephanie and Zsolt Berecz. Stephanie hails from the Loire Valley, and studied oenology in Bordeaux. She came to Tokaj to work at the Disznókő Winery—where she met her future husband working in the vineyards—and she never left! The couple have five hectares of vineyard plantations and produce 17,000 bottles annually. Their cellar in Tarcal dates back hundreds of years, and their vines are spread among several close by vineyards. This wine is a single-vineyard Hárslevelű, with grapes coming from the south-facing Kassai vineyard. The vineyard was first mentioned in writing in 1738, when it was owned by the town of Kassa (a town in today’s Slovakia, called Košice). It has an abundance of beautiful flavors—almond, hazelnut, quince, green apple, pear, lime, and fresh flowers are all here. But it is also all about texture, and it has a wonderfully thick mouth-filling texture. There’s also a slight dustiness and mineral flintiness here, which makes enjoying this wine a real experience. This wine has a golden yellow color, a full body, and lots of fruit intensity. This wine has lots of depth, and a great structure. In terms of food pairings, it works with so many things—from seafood to heartier dishes such as roasted duck, game stew, or fish with Hollandaise sauce.
