2013 Tokaji Aszú

The Count of Buena Vista, Agoston Haraszthy, was a vivacious pioneer whose love affair with grape growing started in his homeland of Hungary. Born into nobility, The Count grew up amidst famed vineyards and orchards that had been in his family for centuries. One of the things he missed terribly after leaving Hungary in 1840 was his beloved Tokaji, a wine made from grapes affected by noble rot, resulting in a beautiful, sweet nectar. In honor of The Count, Buena Vista is proud to introduce our Tokaji Aszú imported directly from Hungary.

A beautiful golden color in the glass, this wine offers fresh and fruity notes that greet the nose and are complimented by citrus aromas. Sweet honey flavors are layered by notes of vanilla, dried figs and apricots. This is an elegant wine with complex acidity and a long finish.

Aszú wines are made when using wine making techniques dating back to 1631. The wine is aged skillfully for a minimum of 3 years and the Puttonyos number indicates the amount of Aszú berries used and the level of sweetness, with 6 being the highest rating for this premium wine. The grapes were harvested from Locse, Diókút and Omlás vineyards. Soil rich in rhyolitic tuff loess over rhyolyte bedrock and under a clay top, plots on steep slopes, and an excellent microclimate combine to form a highly desirable ecology for wine-growing.
