The wine has aromas of fresh dried apricots, spring chamomile blossoms, dried orange and tropical fruits along with a tender hint of pink pepper. Savouring it one may discover a mix of plum and apricot jam that fits well with it’s general fruity nature. A long, full-bodied wine of great complexity with high acid and sugar content that is present in round balance and harmony. The flavour fills the mouth with a long lasting, fresh taste.
Serving temperature: 10-12 °C
The 2013 Tokaji Aszú is made from 100% procured aszú (botrytised) grapes. A most fine vintage, 2013’s Tokaji Aszú is of exquisite quality produced from harvested shrivelled berries fully encompassed by botrytis.
The wine mostly contains Furmint and Hárslevelű, but has trace amounts of Zéta, Kabar, Kövérszőlő and Yellow Muscat aszú berries. The base wine is made 100% from Furmint. We added berries to the fermenting base wine and left them to soak for 24 hours. After pressing it was fermented in tanks. Barrel fermentation takes place in our Szegi cellar where we let this type of wine age in 136-500 liter barrels for at least 18 months.
Recommended with mature hard or blue cheese, goose liver, chocolate desserts and créme brulée.
The wine is currently commercially available.
