A wine with very complex, exquisite aromas it is composed of botrytis from the shrivelled aszú berries and features peach, orange peel, brittle, figs, exotic flowers with a touch of dill at the end. Sampling the wine it has a very clear fruity flavour with orange, quince, pear and apricot notes along with an appearance of white chocolate and vanilla essence. The acids keep the wine round and lengthy. The finish is of a lime-grapefruit aroma that lingers long in the mouth with a mature coffee aftertaste thanks to barrel-aging process. This is a truly fine Tokaj wine with great potential and a long phase of evolution ahead.
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 chocolate and fruit desserts.
The wine is currently commercially available.
