Description

The Holdvölgy’s liquid signature. Its elaboration can be compared to a free style exercise of figure skating. The target: choosing from the historical Tokaj wine-making techniques (Fordítás, Máslás, Szamorodni, Aszú, Essencia) and preparing the most beautiful wine of the vintage, according to Holdvölgy style. Reaching the most dynamic structure possible, with the complexity of an Aszú 5 puttonyos. Fresh and rich Botrytis aromas, lush flavours of honey flowing in it, an excellent sugar-acidity balance, youthful freshness and unforgettable richness of flavours. Its high sugar content accompanied by such acidity is only able to offer so many fruits and aftertaste. It has decades to live!
