Spontaneous fermentation with the skins, without temperature control and spontaneous malolactic fermentation. Battonage for a year, then aged for another 2 years on fine lees in oak and Serbian acacia barrels. Nothing added or taken out.

Furmint used to be one of the noble grapes in the old Austro-Hungarian Empire, but today is mostly known for the sweet wines from Tokaj, Hungary becauase of its susceptibility to botrytis . However, as of late, more and more people are producing dry versions of the grape, in Tokaj, as well as in regions of the former empire.

Baša's amphitheater-shaped Matej vineyard is unique in its microclimate as it gets pretty warm during the long days of the growing season. Hence, this allows Baša to pick grapes that are fully ripe, yet free of botrytis.

Bojan Baša started his wine estate as a hobby back in 2010 when he planted his first vineyard entirely with Pinot Grigio, but now also autochthonous varieties from the region, such as Tamjanika , Furmint , Morava , Grašac Beli (Welschriesling) and Prokupac. Baša’s winemaking approach is very minimalist with organic/biodynamic principles supporting the high biodiversity in and around the vineyards.
