A few years ago, one summer afternoon, I went for a run in the vineyard with my dog. It was already early evening rather than afternoon, I dropped the car off at Almagyar and ran from there all the way to Síkhegy. I stopped there and that's when I was struck by the soft summer breeze coming from the forest, a fantastic summer smell to bite into, and the flock of birds giving a concert. It may be an unimportant story, but it lives vividly in me. I was free and enjoying all the beauty of this area.
Síkhegy Grand Bika is the counterpart of Pajados, maybe a bit like coffee, if Pajados is light roasted, then Síkhegy is definitely dark. Plums, blueberries, cherries, cloves, pink pepper and coffee. Spontaneous fermentation in wooden vats, 14 months in 500-liter oak barrels, 20% new barrels.
Very elegant, sophisticated wine, progressive idea. A really great wine. Just enough of everything, but everything with an amazing accent. It tumbles, catches, lets go, takes off, takes you again. A pyramid placed on a head standing on a needle point.
