The Megyer estate was classified as “First Growth” in 1772 by Royal decree. Here igneous and sedimentary soils and exposed southwest facing slopes house this Furmint/Harslevelu Szamorodni, a traditional style for Tokaj. The word Szamorodni is Polish for "as comes off the vine," and refers to healthy, shrivelled and Botrytized grapes all being harvested and fermented together, at the end of harvest. Depending on the sugar level, it is made into either Száraz (Dry) or Édes (Sweet) Szamorodni. This dry one feels its botrytis earthiness, but predominantly apparent is the biological aging affect from the veil of flor and 5 years in 220 L barrels, just like non-oxidative wines from Jerez and Jura (this wine tilts towards the latter's vin jaune). An amazing freshness throughout, with a swing of alluring rancio Botrytis. White honey, honeycomb, brown butter, salted pine nuts, dried quince, white pepper and ample salty minerality throughout this intriguing wine, one that changes with every sip and every day open. Exceptional.
Old gold in colour with a honeyed, waxy nose of peaches; medium-bodied, with a flavour of apricot jam balanced by lively acidity. Rich and full on the palate with great length.
Ripe stone fruit with green apple scents evolve to generous apricot and pear flavours against a backdrop of zesty acidity and delicate dryness on the finish. An interesting Hungarian take on neighbouring Austria’s signature white grape.
Very pale in colour with a spicy, orange and peach nose with a floral tip note; medium-bodied, off-dry, luscious and rich tangerine, honey and peach flavours.
Golden colour; honeyed peach bouquet with an earthy note; full-bodied, sweet and spicy flavours of honeyed apricot and orange peel with a long lingering finish.
A nice little red from the Hungarian grape Kékfrankos. It has a pretty nose of ripe cherry, raspberry and a hint of spice. It’s a smooth and flavourful wine on the palate with ripe red fruits, soft tannins and integrated tannins. Great value!
A very serviceable, food-friendly wine. Straw-coloured with a spicy apricot nose lifted with a floral note; medium-bodied, off-dry, herbal, minerally flavour finishing with a dried apricot flavour.
