2007 Samual Tinon "Szamorodni" Edés (Sweet) Tokaji (500ml)

SKU #1155917

From the importer: "Where as the Aszú wines take the hand selected single botrytized grapes and macerate them as a paste in fermenting or dry wine, Szamorodni (as it comes) is made by harvesting whole bunches of everything at once – the ripe, botrytized and shriveled. Think of sweet Szamorodni like a light Aszú in terms of winemaking, but not at all watered down. After a brief time on the skins the grapes are pressed into barrel for a minimum of two years. Residual sugar wise, this is akin to making a theoretical 2 Puttonyos with a rich nuttiness and almost Recioto like aromatics. Samuel recommends pairing it with melon and prosciutto, smoked salmon, dried fruit, nuts, blue cheese and anything heavy with ginger."

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
