Zesty & Mineral

A project from Robert Gilvesy in Hungary. The Terra project is an excersise in soils. There are two Terra's in the series, the two Terra are identical in every detail except one. The only difference between them is the terroir. The Terra 1 is from the volcanic soil of Mount Saint George while the grapes for Terra 2 were picked from the dolomitic limestone and clay-loam soil of Mount Tagyon.

This wine has lovely citrus aromas with hints of peach and mineral notes. Medium bodied with a refreshing acidity.

We recommend pairing it with summer meals: fresh salads dressed with dried fruits such as cranberries and walnuts, grilled fish with boiled potatoes and zesty ceviches.

About the Winery

Gilvesy Pincészet

Hungarian expat Róbert Gilvesy moved back to his homeland from Canada, and began building the Gilvesy winemaking empire on the former Esterházy estate on Szent György Hill. Thanks to years of hard work, the Hegymagas-based facility now includes a modern building complex and about 13 hectares of vineyards, in addition to being the home of the family. The area is shaped by 6 million years old volcanoes, where indigenous and international varieties grow organically.

Robert’s absolute admiration for nature and the terroir translates into an immense respect for the environment. By farming using organic practices, the soils and the vines stay healthy. In the winery, by letting nature take its course without controlling the processes, and using local resources, such as Hungarian oak barrels, Gilvesy promotes and protects the Balaton region.
