The Erzsébet family winery is named for the Prácser family’s historic wine cellar, which they bought just after the Communist regime fell, in 1991. The cellar is located right in the center of the Tokaj town, on the emblematic Kopasz hill. The more than 300 year-old cellar was the private cellar of the Russian Tzars, and was once used to store the wines that were selected to be delivered and served to Tzar Elizabeth. Fordítás is a rarely-produced style of sweet Tokaj wine. It is only produced during excellent vintages, in which there is a lot of botrytis (resulting in lots of Aszú berries). The Aszú berries (which are botrytized grapes, picked one-by-one) are soaked in a base wine, and then are pressed to create the Tokaj Aszú. If the grapes are soaked for a second time, and then pressed again, the resulting wine is called Fordítás. The flavor profile is close to a Szamorodoni, with a balanced sweetness and acidity, a long finish, and an elegant floral nose. Fordítás is a very food-friendly style that can go very well not only with the classic pairings of paté and blue cheese, but also with pork chops or duck with fruit-based sauces. If you prefer it for dessert pairing, the recommendation is apple strudel or cheese cake.
