Szepsy, Szamorodni 2013
The Szepsy family has been producing Tokaj wines in Hungary since the 1500s, with the aim of producing the best grapes possible. The estate is comprised of 50 hectares of vines, that are forty years of age on average, planted on steep slopes at high altitude on a rocky volcanic soil. The Szepsy family history is deeply linked to that of Tokaj Aszú wine production: In 1631, Szepsy Laczko Mate was the first man to ever write down how to make Tokaji Aszú. This is a delicious sweet Szamarodni (barrel aged, selected botrytized wine matured in Szerednyei barrels – 200-250 litres – and lightly oxidised).
