Description

Originating from Tokaji, Hungary, this Hungarian dessert wine offers a captivating experience with an intense nose dominated by abundant botrytis. The wine boasts a remarkable structure, featuring pronounced flavors of lime, citrus, and peaches. What sets it apart is the fine balance achieved between richness, racy acidity, and a lingering finish, making it a versatile and delightful choice.

The production of this exquisite wine involves the meticulous selection of fine quality Aszú berries, characterized by excellent flavor, balance, and perfect botrytis. These berries undergo a careful maceration in fermenting must for two days. Following the pressing and completion of fermentation, the wines find their home in 300 and 500-liter Hungarian oak casks within the winery’s extensive underground cellars, maturing for over two years. The final blends, a result of careful crafting, were completed in the spring of 2020, reflecting the dedication to quality throughout the production process.

This dessert wine is not only a testament to craftsmanship but also offers a unique tasting experience. It is ready to be enjoyed now, but for those seeking to savor the evolution of flavors, cellaring for future enjoyment is recommended. As a versatile wine, it can be savored as an aperitif or paired with a cheese plate. For a sweet conclusion to a meal, it pairs exceptionally well with fruit-based desserts or hard cheeses. Alternatively, indulge in this mouth-watering wine on its own, serving it cool for optimal enjoyment.

The harvest details add another layer to the narrative of this exceptional wine. The Aszú berry harvest commenced in early September, with a steady pace maintained in the ideal autumn weather. Particularly noteworthy is the harvest in October, which provided three weeks of textbook conditions—morning mists, afternoon sunshine, and drying winds. The resulting Aszú wines exhibit outstanding structure, plenty of botrytis, depth, and freshness, all indicative of their considerable aging potential.
