HARVEST SO FAR SUGGESTS A GREAT VINTAGE IN TOKAJ

0

The very cold and snowy winter that 2017 began with foreshadowed an excellent vintage and it does not seem to disappoint so far. There has been an even distribution of rainfall and temperature throughout the growing season, the only negative being a high-humidity period in late summer that fostered the growth of noxious fungi. The harvest for dry wines is now coming to a close and while there are some complaints about yield losses to powdery mildew and acidity dropping at a higher-than-expected rate, the overall picture is very positive and many already compare 2017 to 2013, the best vintage of the past decade.
