Tokaj-Hétszőlő has a very unique style thanks to the loess soil which gives more floral, fruitier notes and more elegance, nice minerality to the wines. The most important grape variety is Furmint which is a unique and autochthon grape of Hungary. The winery also works with Hárslevelű and Muscat. Although Tokaj is famous for its sweet aszú wines, Tokaj-Hétszőlő has been focusing on dry Furmint since about 2000.
Winemaking: 5 months in stainless steel tanks, weekly batonnage
Aging Potential: 6-7 years
Tasting Notes: Very intense, fruity, beautiful nose. The palate is very fresh with lime, pear, green apple notes. Elegant acidity and minerality. The wine is already charming in its young age but has nice aging potential too.
Food Pairing: It is a real pleasure to drink this wine on its own but it would work well with seafood, any but grilled fish.
About the Winery: “Hétszőlő” means seven best parcels of vinelands on the Tokaj-Montain. These seven parcels were united in 1502 by the aristocrat Garai family. This became a first class single vineyard in the world’s first official vineyard classification in 1772. Currently Tokaj-Hétszőlő Vineyards works on 55 hectares situated basically in Tokaj Town, at the southern-most part of Tokaj Region. There are the perfect conditions for producing excellent quality of Aszú wines mostly thanks to the two rivers and the high number of sunny hours, as well as the ideal environment for beautiful dry single vineyard Furmint wines. Since 2009, the winery has been working organically on their 55 hectares by Hungária Öko-Garancia. Their grapes are always harvested and selected by hand.
