Located in the north east, in Tokaji, one of the oldest wine regions in the world and capable of making world-class wines.
They’ve been around for a while (since 1406) so have figured out how to make great wines. The history of the winery can be traced back to 1406 to the first written record mentioning the Bodrogkeresztúr cellar. By 1691, having passed through various hands, the estate became the Bodrogkeresztúr winery and in 1944, during the war years, the winery came under the ownership of the Tokaj Wine Company. In 2000, the family behind Champagne D’Aulan took it upon themselves to restore the winery. It operates today under Hungarian ownership once more.
It’s been a while (probably 35 years) since we’ve had a Tokaji. It won’t be that long before the next bottle gets to our table.
A dry and fragrant white, this wine is made from Furmint, the same variety that yields Dereszla’s Tokaji Aszu. The nose is very aromatic with a refreshing and structured palate of juicy pear, spicy apricot and lovely minerality.
Dry and fragrant. Predominantly Furmint (85%) blend with Harslevelu (10%) kand Kabar (5%). This white is delicious with a gentle spicy backbone, a pronounced texture, as well as high acidity and a notably long finish.
It’s great for any all occasions … our’s just happened to be home made pizza night.
