Grand Tokaj Szarvas Aszú - Grand Tokaj

Grand Tokaj Szarvas Aszú

A loess-rich terroir aspect is present in this wine’s aroma. Besides the botrytis, notes of pear, dried chamomile and brittled orange peel appear. The wine also has a sligthly smoky bouquet due to the new wooden barrels. Flavours of pear compote and quince jelly are most prominent in this wine with hints of camomile tea and ripe orange. Along the creaminess and honey notes, the character of ripe grapes and aszú berries is also clearly distinguishable in this select terroir wine. The unique, ripe, warm flavour can be attributed to the peculiar features of the 2013 vintage – warm weather and plentiful sunshine together with the warmth of the loess soil of the Szarvas Terroir – which beautifully embrace the fruitiness of the wine.

Serving temperature:10-12°C

Harvest information

The 2013 Tokaji Szarvas Aszú was made 100% from selected grapes harvested exclusively in our Szarvas vineyard in Tarcal. A most fine vintage, 2013’s Tokaji Szarvas Aszú is of exquisite quality produced from harvested shrivelled berries fully encompassed by botrytis.

Winemaking technique

The wine mostly contains Furmint and Hárslevelű, but has trace amounts of Zéta, Kabar, Kövérszőlő and Sárgamuskotály aszú berries. The base wine is made 100% from Furmint from our Szarvas vineyard. 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.
