FASCINATING FACTS ABOUT
TOKAJ WINE REGION

There are 3 world-famous wine regions in the world where natural sweet wines are produced, with Tokaj being one of them. While in other wine regions, Botrytis cinerea is considered a destructive grape disease, here it delights us with the best quality sweet wines.

Tokaj wine region grape varieties ripen in special conditions (warm autumn, proximity of rivers, changing humidity: misty and humid in the morning, dry during the day) which makes the natural sugar content of the grapes sufficient to produce sweet wine.

Traditional specialty wine from Tokaj, made by topping up botrytized grapes twice.

Subtly carrying hints of the aszú, its taste takes long to dissipate owing to its acids.

Vinum regnum, rex vinorum – wine of kings and king of wines!
The liquid gold of Tokaj-Hegyalja has been carrying its title proud and unwavering. Every sip of its exquisite and sublime taste is a gift to body and soul. It is a crime keeping it on the top shelves of cupboards, waiting for it o be the attendant to a special occasion, when countless aszú wines are only waiting to make any moment sweet and memorable.
The aszú wines of the Szedmák Winery on the brink of their coming-of-age, at 16, 17, and 20 years, respectively, make it known without any ado where they are found in the hierarchy.
We are often asked about what foods we recommend it with.
The aszú is, by itself, a bottled-up confectionary masterpiece, being perfectly comfortable alone. However, if we’d prefer company, slightly seasoned roast meats, homemade goose liver paté, and pastries with apple, walnut, almond, or plum match with it flawlessly to create gastronomic symbiosis.

The legend itself!
Imagine the searing heat crackling in the air in rocky ridges. Every plant that could not absorb enough water is at the brink of drying out. Every plant but the grapes, which in the meantime are focusing all their might on maintaining a fragile alliance with the moisture remaining somewhere deep within the soil, and take the fight to the conditions above the ground. The legendary and unrepeatable 5 puttonyos Aszú of 2000 was born of this perfect symbiosis.
Message from the maker: In 2000, every Furmint grape of the Deák vineyard was used to make aszú wine. The aszú grapes yielded 55 liters of wine essence. 2460 bottles produced.
