Undeniably one of the world's great classic sweet wines - the balance, intensity and complexity and sheer drinkability of this wine show the tiny Szepsy winery to be one of the best on the planet! There are winemakers and there are alchemists; how else could you explain the pureness of Szepsy's wines, the elegance of his fruit and the harmony of structure? And yet, like most great wine-makers, his wines are not about what he does as much as what he does not do. There is no over-working the fruit at this estate, no unbalanced wines due to 'ambitious' winemaking. The philosophy is all about preserving the quality of the fruit and not about enhancement by artifice or sleight of hand. If Szepsy's fruit traces the purest possible line from the vineyard to the bottle, the man himself can boast a lineage that goes back close to the origins of Tokaji: He is the direct descendant of Szepsy Lack Mte who, in 1631 was the first person to write down the Tokaji making process.
