Kéknyelű (Blue Stalk) Premium – Laposa
Laposa Blue Stalk – Istenmeredekje: Lord paramount of all Badacsony wines, from Laposa winery’s premium range. The grapes have been hand selected by the bunch from the steepest, warmest, and simply the most beautiful slopes of their wine estate. This is the southern mountainside of the Badacsony mountains. The winery only produces a few hundred bottles from this wine, and hence it is a highly valued, and a must-try gem not only from their winery, but also from the Badacsony region.
Kéknyelű (Blue Stalk) is an ancient Hungarian grape variety, that remains to be found only in Badacsony today. The variety was named after the blueish-reddish colour of its petioles.
Blue Stalk Istenmeredekje has a distinctive nose with scents of peach, melon and dried fruits. Extremely mineral rich and highly concentrated due to its balanced acidity, greatly expressing the typical characters of the volcanic terroir. It is indeed a perfect choice for those who prefer and appreciate mature wines.
