Wine Notes

This is a single vineyard Szamorodni wine, not as sweet as the Aszu and therefore a little more approachable if you’re unused to extremely sweet wines, but with similar complexity. There is a very acceptable bitterness here that would be fine with a fruit-based dessert or a washed rind cheese but which might overwhelm your foie gras. Probably a good 20 years more ageing capability here too.

Producer Notes

István Szepsy probably makes the best wines in Hungary and therefore, dependent on your personal preferences, the best sweet wines in the world (please don’t be offended Sauternes fans, we aren’t writing off Chateau d’Yquem quite yet).
Production is very small, very quality focussed, and very much a family business with several generations of Szepsys involved in the production of the wine.
One thing that you’ll find in all of Istvan Szepsy’s wines is a perfect balance of minerality and acidity; the other, regardless of sugar level, is astounding complexity.
