Kövérszőlő

Kövérszőlő, also known as Fehérszőlő (the fat grape) originated in Transylvania but also found a home in Tokaji and in neighboring Romania. In the mid 1800’s Phylloxera nearly wiped it out, but a few plantings survived and it’s slowly making a comeback thanks to a handful of growers. Big berried, early ripening, and high in potential sugar made it historically ideal for Aszú production, but with extensive pruning, crop management, and picking early, Botrytis (Noble Rot) can be avoided.
