2013 Eszterbauer "Nagyapám" Kadarka

Janos Eszterbauer is a 10th generation wine maker in the red wine district of Szekszárd. South of Budapest, north of Croatia at a latitude between Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, the ancient loess hills of Szekszárd have been planted to vineyards since before the Celts. This strong connection to the past is depicted by the 1930's black and white picture of his grandfather or "Nagyapam" on the label of this 100% Kadarka. The exact origin of the grape is unknown but it is believed to have been brought to Szekszárd from modern day Bulgaria by the Turks. This... Read More »

Composed of 85% Furmint, and 15% Hárslevelu, the 2008 Pezsgo underwent primary fermentation in 100% Hungarian oak with natural ambient Tokaji yeasts, followed by secondary fermentation in bottle, with12 months ageing on the fine lees.

Zwack Unicum Liqueur 1L [cannot ship]

There's a pretty incredible history behind Zwack. Born in 1790, the Zwack family eventually founded their recipe into an official business in 1840 and became Hungary's official beverage of choice.The business thrived into the early 20th century until the Red Army began marching westward. When the communists came to Hungary, the Zwacks fled to the United States, taking their recipe with them and leaving a fake one behind for the new regime that wanted to nationalize the company. It's been said that the recipe itself is what got János and Péter Zwack off o... Read More »

2012 Királyudvar Furmint Sec (Dry)

Anthony Hwang was born in the Philippines and made his money as a businessman in New York, but it was his passion for wine that led him to buy the Királyudvar estate, a jewel in the Hungarian crown that used to supply wine to the Hapsburgs during the days of the Hungarian Empire. Under Hwang's supervision, and with the help of his partner Noël Pinguet of Vouvray's Domaine Huët, this estate has been revitalized, and the wines being made there today are worthy of Tokaji's legacy.

2005 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

94 points Wine Spectator: "The vivid acidity defines this mineral-laden, sweet Tokaji, which offers a mix of dried citrus, orange peel, antique furniture and smoky mineral flavors wrapped around a tight core.

2011 Fekete Béla Juhfark Somló

92 points Wine & Spirits: "One of the last vintages for Fekete Béla, who’s approaching 90 years old, this is as striking as Somló itself, a mound of volcanic soil rising out of the ocean that once covered it. The wine is monolithic, a liquid stone, the acidity carving deep and fast channels through that stony flavor. There’s really no fruit to speak of; instead, there’s earth, deep, profound and lasting. Decant before serving, and have something rich on hand, like smoked fish." (6/2014) K&L Notes: Somló: Wines of the Volcano Gods - Fekete Béla is 'The Grand Old Man' of Somló. To know his wines...

2013 Szöke Irsai Oliver

"Originally crossed in 1930, the parents of this native grape are Gewürztraminer and Muscat Ottonel. Not surprisingly, it's incredibly perfumed and floral. That said, its not fat and weighty on the palate like Gewürztraminer can often be and has there’s no detectable residual sugar either. The finish has a mineral, almost saline quality that balances out the Muscat heavy aromatics. And while the style is decidedly reductive, it opens up right away and jumps out of the glass even when chilled. While it can easily stand alone as an aperitif, it pairs beaut... Read More »

2007 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Essencia .375ml (6 pack Wood Box) (Pre-Arrival)

100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2007 Essencia from the Royal Tokaji Wine Company, the fifth made in the modern era, is an otherworldly wine that has difficulty fitting into the definition of "wine." My Pavlovian reaction tasting it from bottle was identical to my reaction when I tasted it at the winery in September 2014. You cannot help but laugh at the sheer audacity of its syrupy pour into your glass or preferably on to a spoon. (As an aside, I strongly recommend this traditional method of consuming Essencia. I can only analogize to Asian cuisine tasting better with chopsticks. S ...Read More »

2013 Attila Gere Portugieser Villány

"Gere Portugieser is made from vines young and old planted in some of the best vineyards of the estate. After fermentation with wild yeast in stainless steel the wine spends 4 months on 5000 liter barrels to complete malolactic fermentation. An irresistible, fragrant, purple red delight bursting with aromas of wild raspberry and Amarro, Gere Portugieser is devoid of tannin, feather light and takes a chill nicely. Great with stuffed paprika it has the flavor flexibility to pair with something as unexpected as perfumed Indian fare." (Blue Danube Wine Co.)

2008 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Szt. Tamás 6 puttonyos 500ml

96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Tokaji Aszu Szt Tamas 6-Puttonyos is a no-holds-barred, slam-dunk, brilliant wine. The delineation is astonishing on the nose, unfurling with entrancing scents of orange blossom, freshly sliced apricots, almond and quince – all beautifully focused. The palate has pitch-perfect acidity, great depth and power, and yet it is elegant from its start to its finish, which has that ever so slightly bitter lemon tang that offsets the sweetness. Forget whatever you are doing – go seek out this sensational Tokaji." (12/2013) K&L Notes: From the winery: "Royal Tokaji ow... Read More »

2009 J&J Eger Wine Company Eged-Hegy Kékfrankos

J and J Eger Wine Company is the product of an unexpected partnership between Canadian born Hungarian and Master Sommelier John Szabo and physician and Eger native and winemaker Dr. János Stumpf. Ultimately it was their shared fascination with the cool North Hungarian terroir of Eger and the exotic mineral rich reds, made from the local variety Kékfrankos (Blaufrankisch). Their tiny 500 case production, more a professionally attended to hobby than a production is based around prime parcels of vineyards located on the steepest most exposed hill overlookin...

2009 J&J Eger Wine Company Egri Kékfrankos

John Szabo was the first Canadian to earn the title of Master Sommelier, but his success did not keep him in one place. His love of wine led him back to his ancestral home of Hungary. He was most excited by the cool climate region of Eger, one of the most northerly red wine regions in Europe, where the spicy and minerally Kekfrankos grows on a large hill overlooking the medieval city at the center of the region. Szabo teamed up with Janos Stumpf, a disciple of the late Tibor Gal, winemaker of the Super-Tuscan Ornellaia, and J&J Eger was born. From the im... Read More »

2003 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Szt. Tamás 6 puttonyos 500ml

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Tokaji Aszu Szt Tamas 6-Puttonyos has a potent bouquet of marmalade, wax resin, creme brulee and a touch of candle wax mixed with furniture polish. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, vibrant marmalade and quince entry. There is great poise here, remarkable given the vintage, with a precise orange zest and apricot finish. This is drinking beautifully." (12/2013) K&L Notes: From the winery: "Royal Tokaji owns a unique combination of first and second growth vineyards, including one of the two great first growths Mezes Maly.

2008 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Betsek 6 Puttonyos 500ml (Previously $130)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Tokaji Aszu Betsek 6-Puttonyos is another fabulous 2008 to add to the Royal Tokaji Company’s roster. The nose is as clean as a whistle: beautifully delineated with candied orange peel, honeysuckle and resinous scents, the latter becoming more accentuated with about 20 minutes aeration. The palate is underpinned by the razor-sharp acidity that lends this Tokaji so much freshness and vitality. It is a feisty little thing like the 2007, but the 2008 displays even better control and focus. The tangy marmalade-infused finish rivets you to the spot, a ...Read More »

2011 Spiegelberg "Wedding Night Wine"

92 points Wine & Spirits: "István Spiegelberg blends Hungary's three greatest white wine grapes—juhfark, hárslevelu, and furmint— for this opulent white. Fermented spontaneously in 500-liter Hungarian oak casks and held in cask for another year or so before bottling, this is rich as marzipan, with hárslevelu's delicate florals playing over top. The light herbal notes and vibrant acidity keep it lifted enough to enjoy on its own, or with fish in a cream sauce." K&L Notes: From the importer: "One of the most unique traditions in Somló is the belief that drinking its wines before copulation would... Read More »
