"Opens with a salty mineral scent, followed by tinges of sunflower-seed, almond, cornel-berry, sorb and a little paté. Beautiful acids and vibrant character upon tasting, you could almost call it youthful. Not too heavy, yet elegant, with substantial coffee, cocoa and pipe tobacco, dried sour cherry and cherry, aged plum jam, along with an exciting line of citrus fruits. Unusually long finish, complex lot. Beautiful."

... is situated NW of Tolcsva, bordered by the Patkó and Ciróka vineyard plots. It slopes to the SW at a degree of 10-15%. The terroir is brown forest soil with clay pockets containing small amounts of clay, with a high percentage of rhyolite. The base rock is deep stratum rhyolitic tuff. Kossuth mentioned this dülö near Tolcsva as "one of the jewels of the famous Szirmay vineyards" in 1903. This family was involved with the region and the Tokaji wine development from at least the 15th century, and had close relationship with the Rákóczi and Drugeth families. Antal Szirmay (1747-1812) became famous with his book from 1803, which determined to the very first time in the world, before any other wine region in Europe, the vineyards according to their classification based on communities established by the 1772 survey. Long time before the Szirmay family, in 1520, the town of Eperjes (today Presov in Slovakia), which already owned two vineyards in Tolcsva, purchased vineyard in Gyopáros.
