Maurer – Karom 2020
Blend of Bakator, Mézes Fehér (Medenac Beli) and Szerémi Zöld (Sremska Zelenika).
Forgotten Central European gems saved by Oszkar Maurer, guardian of native grape varieties.
With a short maceration of three days this is rich and exhilarating white wine.
Straw yellow in colour, slightly misty with pronounced aroma’s of green apple, pineapple, citrus fruit and fresh peaches.
Giving it some time in the glass there is a spicy development and following resinous tones supported by a dry, flinty charge.
Ripe pear, passion fruit and notes of nutmeg with cedar.
11 lunar phases in old oak barrels left a tender mark on this wine.
The epilogue is savory, with gentle fresh acidity and almond spice cake in the background.
