The iconic Burgundian international variety has found a welcoming home in our sunny, but cool, south-southwest located, mineral-rich granite, volcanic and stony-tuff soil in Noszvaj. The unique microclimate produces characterful, beautiful, fresh, fruity wines. Our Battonage (deliberately spelled this way) was barrel fermented and aged on fine lees to produce an elegant, fruit driven and silky textured wine.
