Istvàn Szepsy – Szamorodni 2012 (50cl)
The Szepsy family has been producing Tokaj wines since the 1500s, with the aim of producing the best grapes possible without compromise. 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 that is considered to be the single, most complex soil composition. 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. Eighteen generations later, now under István Szepsy’s direction, the same standards remain and younger generations honour the family tradition of continually striving towards perfection.
This is the most astonishing sweet Szamarodni whose depth, richness, sweetness, purity of flavour and poise easily outclasses other producer’s 5 puttonyos Aszu wines.
