2017 was an excellent aszú vintage, with resulting wines characterised by an outstanding balance and lovely acidity. This 6 Puttonyos Tokaji aszú is a blend of mostly Hárslevelű with a touch of Furmint, creating an award-winning sweet wine with an intensely perfumed aroma.
Luscious fragrance of apricot and ginger jam, peaches and cream, honeysuckle, and orange blossom with a lovely light touch of warming spice. A rich palate of candied and tropical citrus fruit, with a layer of new Hungarian oak adding toasted, woody notes, finishing with an assertive and imposing texture.
It goes very well with charcuterie like ham, fruit based desserts or a selection of blue cheese including Gorgonzola, Stilton and Roquefort.

Meet the Winemaker
Gróf Degenfeld Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
In 1994 the Count Degenfeld family successfully revived its wine estate in the heart of the Tokaj wine region, ensuring that over 150-year-old tradition lives on with the latest generation. Winemaking was closely intertwined with the family’s deep love and respect for nature; therefore, they have cultivated their vineyards organically since 2009. The family only work with native grapes best suited to the unique micro-climate, creating a range of single varietal wines with award-winning credentials. The bunches are hand-harvested and carefully vinified with minimal intervention. As a result, you are tasting an authentic drop of the volcanic Tokaj terroir with every sip you take.
