A keeper and protector of the national oenological tradition, the largest state winery of the historic Tokaj Wine Region, part of the UNESCO World Heritage, underwent a renewal by the addition of a 21st-century processing plant in 2013. Its wines conceived in a new spirit have already won valuable trophies.
Category-winner wine: Grand Tokaj 6 Puttonyos – Tokaji Aszú 2013
The 2013 6 puttonyos Tokaji mainly consists of Furmint and Hárslevelű aszú grapes, but it also has smaller amounts of Zéta, Kabar, Kövérszőlő and Muscat Lunel. It has a fresh apricot nose with chamomile-like spring floral and tropical fruity notes. It is plum- and apricot jam-like on the palate combined with fruitiness. A full-bodied wine with a lingering finish, impressive complexity and most probably a long maturation potential.
