Robert, whose family is originally from Hungary, was born in Canada and grew up on a farm. After some years working as an architect, he found his passion in winemaking, and relocated to his grandparent's country to start a winery.

Brut Nature is made from Furmint grapes sourced from the organic Váradi vineyard. Aromas of white-fleshed and citrus fruit with hints of toast. Delicate on the palate with a creamy texture, subtle bubbles and yeasty notes complementing the aromas. A great example on how Furmint is well-suited to make sparkling wine especially from volcanic soil.

Furmint complements herb-crusted poultry or fish. You can also try it with delicate Asian dishes like sushi or dumplings.

90 points - John Szabo, MS

Pure furmint, made from grapes harvested in the first pass through the vineyards in early September, leaving bunches for the still furmint to hang a little longer, essentially a late 'green' harvest. Spontaneous ferment of the base wine, usually no malo, though not actively prevented. Secondary fermentation is done at Garamvári in Budapest; zero dosage. The nose offers a fine mix of fresh fruit and evolving yeasty-autolysis character, but this falls very much on the youthful and fresh side of the spectrum, discreet and elegant. Acids are sharp and tight in the varietal idiom - this bottling spent 24 months on lees, though bottles remain undisgorged, and I look forward to tasting one of these more yeast-influenced bottles in future, which will surely add to the complexity as well as a bit of fat and protein on the palate. Effervescent is fine and refined in any case, and length is very good. Well made bubbles. 3000 bottles made. Tasted July 2023.
