A skin-contact white cuvée of typical grapes of the Carpathian basin – four in 2021, which inspired the name (plasma is the fourth state of matter). “While our red Controlled Chaos is always a bit more unleashed, with this wine we go for a more deliberate search for a good balance between the varieties, while still focusing on its zippy energy.”

Grapes: Juhfark, Furmint, Hárslevelű, Olaszrizling

Vineyards: Juhfark, Furmint, Hárslevelű: Somló hill, Grófi dűlő (South side); Olaszrizling: Szent György hill (South side). Volcanic basalt with limestone layers, sand and clay in between.

Making of: the grapes were hand-picked. Juhfark was direct-pressed while the Furmint, Hárslevelű and Olaszrizling fermented 4 days on skins in open vats. The Furmint and Hárslevelű were then blended together in a 600L barrel, Juhfark went to another 600L one and the Olaszrizling went in 400L big barrel. All wines spent 8 months in the barrels on the lees, no racking. Final blend was made 2 days before bottling. No additions incl. SO2, no filter, or fining.

Personality: instantly enticing. The maceration touch is gently present, only to make things even more interesting – the star of the show is this wine’s incredible energy and vitality. Lovely stuff.
