Fruity, youthful light Tokaji
Quince, lemon, pear and grape
Citrus, grapefruit, orange peel and spice
Starts with the fragrance of an Aszú
the sweet seducer
Round and full-bodied, with juicy ripe fruits
Aszú is not the only wine in Tokaj – the region offers much more! Variety is the spice of life – and Tokaji wines, which can only be compared to the world’s best, offer their own style whether they be dry, late harvest, Szamorodni or Aszú.
The lovely village of Erdőbénye is a settlement embraced by vineyards and forests set in a gorgeous basin of the Tokaj Wine Region. This former market town still retains its late 19th-century charm.
A south-facing dűlő (vineyard), the upper third of the south-facing Sajgó-hegy (once called Előhegy).
Southwest-facing dülő (vineyard) with rhyolite tuff on the range of hills between Erdőbénye and Tolcsva.
We bought the house of a former winemaker house in Erdőbénye which once belonged to the Szirmay estate. Later it became the residence of wine merchants. The last owner was the family of Armenian merchant Gyula Azbej.
At present the acids define the flavour. Though they are not aggressive, they are overly defined and disturb the complexity of the taste so it can only slide over the tastebuds but cannot linger.
