Erzsébet Winery Furmint/Hárslevelű

The Erzsébet Winery is one of Tokaj’s leading small wineries. It’s a true family-affair, run by siblings Hajnalka and Miklós Prácser and their parents. While Hajni sells the wine (and educates visitors on Tokaj), Miki is busy in the mould-covered cellar making the wine, and their parents (Miklós Sr. and Erzsébet) reign over the vineyards, which are located on some of the best grand cru vineyard sites in the region. Tokaj’s Betsek vineyard—where this wine comes from—is classified as a Grand-cru site. This lovely wine, a mix of Furmint and Hárslevelű, has a distinctive rich and full body, thanks in part to the Betsek vineyard. The region’s trademark high-acidity levels are balanced by this wine’s power and the texture. This is a premium, age-worthy, rich style of Furmint that will show its best after five or six years of bottle ageing. If you can resist the temptation of drinking it, it can give you an extraordinary experience after some years resting in the cellar. If you decide to enjoy it young, decanting is advised. Opening this wine will transform any occasion into a special one. Baked potato dishes, creamy cheeses and good friends are strongly advised when enjoying this wine (13.5 percent alcohol).
