Sweet wine, 50cl. Full bodied Furmint, Hárslevelű and Sárgamuskotály blend from Tokaj, Hungary. 9.0% ABV.
The 2013 vintage resulted in high acidity wines with taut structure. The blend is 70% Furmint, 20% Hárslevelű and 10% Sárgamuskotály, old vines. The spontaneous fermentation was followed by 30 months of barrel ageing. Final result: 260 grams of residual sugar, 7g/l of acidity and 9% alcohol with ripe apricot, tropical fruit aromas but still maintaining freshness on the thick palate with incredible balance. An elegant, big Aszú from Szepsy. The crown jewel for your cellar, a must have wine!
Producer Profile Szepsy
The Szepsy family has been producing Tokaj wines since the 1500s, with the aim of producing the best grapes possible without compromise. The estate is comprised of 50 hectares of vines, that are forty years of age on average, planted on steep slopes at high altitude on a rocky volcanic soil that is considered to be the single, most complex soil composition. The Szepsy family history is deeply linked to that of Tokaj Aszú wine production: In 1631, Szepsy Laczkó Máté was the first man to ever write down how to make Tokaji Aszú. Eighteen generations later, now under István Szepsy’s direction, the same standards remain and younger generations honour the family tradition of continually striving towards perfection.
