Our vineyard of Riesling de Rhin and Hárslevelű is only seperated with a small road from our other area with 30-year-old grapevines. We bought these 0,6 hectares in 2016 and cultivate it from 2017 on. We are continuously renewing and replacing what is necessary. On starting our cultivation vine load was more than halved. In this way we believe the superior quality of the terroir is more prevailing. Its effect on wine quality is without any doubt.

The name comes from the day of the first harvest (following the above changes): 21st September (solstice). Gábor decided on a two-day maceration with the skins that may explain the more robust character of this type of grapes.

The younger „brother” of „Sunturner” 2017. Due to less maceration time with the skins (1-1,5 days) less astringency can be felt. It may be worth making a tasting with both „Sunturners” to see the differences in the wines coming from the different weather conditions of these two calendar years.
