Furmint is the second-most planted grape variety in Slovenia, also known as Šipon, or Pušipel in Croatia. In 2008 Johannes and Michael Gross paid a visit to István Szepsy, the pioneer of dry Furmint, in order to buy a selection of his best grape vines. They planted the vines on steep terraces in Gorca, with characteristic limy clay marl soil.
After the harvest, the whole cluster is pressed, and spontaneously fermented in 2600l used oak barrels. After 12 months in oak, follows the maturation in steel tanks for 6 months. On the nose harmonic aroma of apple blossom, quince and lemon tyme. Citrus zest and mint round off the bouquet, with some hints of wet stone and smoke. Fresh acidity and lemon appear in the long aftertaste. Delicate tannins complete the texture and round off the body.
