Hétszőlő Winery Furmint/Hárslevelű

This sweet wine has an extraordinary balance between sweetness (96 grams of residual sugar) and acidity (6.4 grams). It has intense aromas of ripe tropical fruits, elderflower, and apricot. That would be just enough to make this wine very good, but there is much more behind it. The grapes—which are a mixture of botrytized and healthy bunches—come from the Nagyszőlő and Hétszőlő vineyards. The Hétszőlő vineyard dates back to 1502, when it was created by the Garai family who unified the best seven (hét) vineyards (szőlő) from the southernmost slope of the Tokaj Hill. The Hétszőlő vineyard was, and still is, recognized as one of the area’s best because its loess-based soil produces aromatic and softer wines. Because of its great location and attributes, Hétszőlő has had a long list of famous owners, including Gáspár Károly (Hungarian translator of the Bible), Gábor Bethlen (Prince of Transylvania), the royal Rákoczy family, and the Habsburgs. These days the winery is owned by Michael Reyber, a French investor who owns the highly-regarded Cos d’Estrournel Estate in Bordeaux. Enjoy this wine with rich cheese, paté, or ricotta-based desserts.
