With almost 200 grams of residual sugar and exceptional ripeness, this is a real big Tokaj wine from Zoltán Demeter’s cellar. Raisins, dried fruit, mainly peaches and dates on the nose, followed by fresher fruits, mangos and grapes on the palate. A complex, substantial, long aszú wine in a special wooden box.
„Maybe this special vintage was necessary so that after 13 years myself and Bortársaság could get to know each other again. The vintage made it obvious that something is happening in the world that both nature and winemaker should adapt to. The starlings knew what their task was: they arrived a month early, and we started the harvest at the beginning of September, instead of the usual end of October. One can only make good wine in big freedom, and a credible estate wine is only made if people stand behind it and the place of growth verifies them. This is more and more important in my thinking.”
