Péter Pince Tokaji Szamorodni 2019
Located in Hungary’s Tokaj-Hegyalja region on the border between the villages of Tokaj and Tarcal, family owned and operated Péter Winery farms five hectares of vineyards, including Thurzó, Mézes- mály, Bige, Mogyorós, Mester-Völgy, Lónyai, and Kövesd. From these come native Hungarian varieties like Furmint, Hárslevelű, Sárgamuskotály, Kövérszőlő, Zéta, and Kabar made in a variety of styles – dry, semi-dry, semi-sweet, and sweet. “Tokaj is my region,” says Péter Ákos. “It is home. I know every nook and cranny, I select the most promising fruit with strong hands and careful care, collecting the warmth of the sun’s rays and the power of the wind, refining what nature has given us into wine.”
The grapes for this sweet Szamorodni were harvested between September 20 and October 10, depending on the variety and the ripeness, with just the right quantity of botrytized berries. The juice was then fermented in stainless steel, filtered, and aged a minimum of eight months in a mix of new, second, and third-use barrels, whose wood comes from Tokaj’s Zempléni Hills.
From an excellent vintage in Tokaj comes Péter’s Szamorodni – sweet, silky-smooth, and replete with with flavours like ripe, juicy peaches, dried apricot and honeyed citrus – with a just a smidge of vanilla and toasty oak notes from long aging in barrel. Layered and complex, this Szamorodni is luscious.
