Karádi-Berger, Tokaji Szamorodni, Hungary, 2010
Szamorodni is an adjective which translates as ‘made by itself’. The name refers to the fact that healthy and botrytised bunches are harvested and vinified together. The nose suggests a sweet Tokaji, but the palate is dry, like a Sherry, with crystallised apricot and honey. It’s viscous, rich and powerful enlivened by zesty acidity.
