Disznókö Tokaji 1413 Szamorodni Edes (500 ml)

Disznókö is one of the most famous producers of sweet Tokaji in the world.
The estate owns only one large vineyard of about 250 acres, classified in 1772 and planted only with local indigenous grape, in particular Furmint. These wines are considered among the best sweet wines in the world, classified in puttonyos according to their residual sugar levels that express at their best the Hungarian tradition and terroir.
1413 is the year the Disznókő vineyard was first mentioned in a land register. So an apt name for this modern interpretation of Édes (sweet) Szamorodni, a traditional Tokaji wine. The name comes from the Polish meaning “as it comes”: the bunches come as they are from vineyard to cellar. The grapes are not selected one by one (harvesting method for making Aszú wines), but picked in whole bunches with many shrivelled and botrytised grapes.
