2007 Samual Tinon "Szamorodni" Edés (Sweet) Tokaji (500ml) (Previously $70)
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."
