2017 was an exceptional sweet wine year. The Furmint and Hárslevelű bunches botrytize the nicest when botrytis hits them in complete ripeness. And when the long and warm Indian summer meets with abundant morning dew – that’s the real Szamorodni nirvana itself. In 2017, this graceful state remained for months, and that’s why István Balassa decided to select the bunches and parts of bunches for this Szamorodni separately from seven parcels. “It was spontaneously fermented in [two] Trust barrels, one of 300 litres and one of 225 litres, where it was also aged for more than a year. I like Szamorodni when it’s muscly, when it can stand up to an aszú with its thickness and power. This is like that: 200 grams of residual sugar, vibrant acidity, creaminess and powerful Betsek fruitiness.” István Balassa.
