Tokaji Harslevelu Expression, Holdvolgy 2017
This wine is a wonderful example of how good dry Tokaji can be. The nose opens with dry stone fruit with soft honey and delicate salinity. The palate is rich and clean baked apple soft oak and ripe peach. But there is an earthy minerality and bright acidity that brings harmony.
Red ferrous oxide soil of high clay content, with scattered highly quartzitic and rhyolitic islands. Rich in silica sediment, with high macroelement and microelement content.
Our winery is in the heart of the Tokaj wine region in Hungary, just a few miles from Europe’s geometric centre. The Mad basin holds a special position in the world of winegrowing because of its unique soil, macroclimate, and microclimate. Settled as early as the 15th century, Mad is identified in ancient documents as a borough. It was a meeting point for barons, counts, lords, and wine merchants, making it a pivotal location for winegrowing and the wine trade.
Holdvolgy operates on an area of twenty-eight hectares. Our estate is situated on twenty-seven parcels within seven different vineyards in the best areas of the Mad basin. Our cellar is one of the oldest cellar systems in the region, with some sections dating back as far as the 16th century. Our cellar is also one of the longest, measuring 1.8 kilometers.
The history of the winery started with a one-hectare birthday present. By 2021, the Estate had grown to twenty-eight hectares. The goal was and still is to achieve the vision of creating an iconic brand by international standards. In the eve of this 21st Century and taking into account all the major wine regions of the World only Tokaj and more particularly the Mád Basin would give us the means to succeed in our quest.
