From the Critics:

  • "Thick and sweet, yet with lively structure supporting the apricot, honey and mineral flavors in this polished dessert wine. It's so well-integrated and appealing now, but aging in the bottle will develop more nuance and depth. Fine length. Best from 2005 through 2025. 415 cases made." -94 points Wine Spectator

    "A darker shade of orange, with a nose of marmalade and honey. Lacks a little acidity, but the palate weight is impressive - perhaps the lightest of the range. Softer texture and restrained sweetness make a the finish quite refreshing." -5 out of 5 Stars, Decanter Magazine

    WINE:
    "The white grape varieties Furmint, Harslevelu, and Muscat produce dry and lively wines. However when climatic conditions are joined the wind dries up the grapes and the botrytis coats them with its white veil. It is the Aszu grapes that gave their name to the high-class wine of Tokaj. These Aszu berries concentrate the aromas of dry fruit, honey and sometimes citrus fruit or banana that give the exceptional character to the Tokaj wine."

    "Tradition wants these grapes to be hand-picked one by one and transported in small crates: the puttonyos. Following the quality of the harvest and the more or less important presence of raisining and botrytis, one will vinify different wines: the great sweet wines, the dries, semi sweet, late harvest etc." -Winery

    VINEYARDS:
    "The exceptional Tokaj vineyard covers 5,000 hectares that are located around the little village of Tokaj in the east of Hungary. In the heart of this legendary vineyard, Chateau Dereszla has a rich diversity of terroirs situated in the classified great growths area. The very beautiful and historical cellars, dug inside the rock were renovated in 2003. The wines can therefore develop in the traditional way with ideal temperature and hygrometric conditions. The property is managed by an enthusiastic Hungarian team with a long-established expertise sharing the same philosophy for wine dedication: perfection, conviviality and pleasure."

    "The soils are clayey, rich in eruptive and sedimentary rocks and loess and the vineyard covers an area of 60 hectares. The average age of the vines is 35 years old." -Winery
