Let’s meditate with Holdvölgy

Holdvölgy estate in Mád (Tokaj) (meaning ‘Moonvalley’) makes outstanding wines, and their 100% Furmint is stunningas well. Meditation is the name of the varietal Furmint wines (see in our cover photo), currently vintage 2020 is on sale, however, at Furmint February the 2021 vintage will debut. Meditation is always fermented in stainless steel and aged for some 5 months in barrel. The grape comes from Király vineyard, a 1st class cru of Tokaj.
About Meditation 2020: “The 6th release of our parcel selected dry Furmint from the historical first growth Király. “An elegant wine in the spirit of a modern and crystal clear style. On the nose fresh anise with a hint of apple and almond blossom. Elegant smoky notes intensify its minerality. The palate is dominated by white grapefruit and almond. The sip is powerful with a long finish.”
