Tokaj Excellence : Wine specialties are based on furmint and linden grapes
Tokaj Excellence winery’s foundations were laid in 2014 with the purchase of some land in Tállya, followed by Mád and Rátka. The majority of the high – lying areas are set in a mystical climate of wind-swept, bird-filled countryside.
The abandoned and outdated capitals have been replaced by modern plantations that are now being harvested. Tokaj Excellence are looking forward to the harvest in the coming years, when their wines will be able to include the fruits of the capitals they have planted.
Tokaj Excellence also looked after productive vineyards, the fruits of which are aged in barrels. The home-grown vineyards come from the Nyrjes, Bojták, Hermit, Sipos, Useful, Rohos, körtánc, Rékka Kerék-oak, and Bádek, Vilmány vineyards in Tállya – typically for reductive processing, but they also use barrel maturation depending on consumer demand.
Tokaj Excellence first wine series dates back to the 2016 harvest, and their product line has grown steadily since then. In their cellar, white dry, semi-dry, and sweet wines, late harvest wines, and Tokaj wine specialties – szamorodni, translation, asz, essence – are matured.
Tokaj Excellence mainly use technological procedures in accordance with the regulations of the Tokaj PDO, as well as the PGI of Upper Hungary, the Zemplén PGI. Our offer includes furmint, linden, yellow muscat varieties and cuvées made from them. Tokaj Excellence wine specialties are based on furmint and linden grapes.
Over the years, the size of Tokaj production area has increased to over 30 hectares, and due to continuous technological developments, the wine-growing capacity follows the growing demands. The center of the winery and business is located in the Tokaj Excellence Tray. An important principle in the development of their business is the discovery of new technologies and unknown paths in both viticulture and winemaking, keeping in mind the traditions characteristic of the wine region.
