Our Notes: Sold out! In 2009 Zoltán’s daughter was born and he quickly named this wine after her. It will easily last until she’s old enough to drink it. “Főbor” is an old Hungarian word that means, “as it comes” meaning both botrytis and fresh grapes harvested and fermented together. Due to this style being a historical favorite in Poland, the Polish word “Szamorodni” eventually replaced it. This is an attempt to revive some largely forgotten history. Dark honey in color, burnt orange aromatics and a seemingly impossible balance of acidity and residual sugar. A dense and counter intuitively refreshing barrage of peaches, honey and roasted nuts.

"Clear on nose, between medium and high on intensity. Medium Amber in color, truly a Tokaji how it has been always explained or known. High on sugar level, medium amber in the glass, this wine smells of raw honey and candied exotic fruits. In the mouth the wine offers burnt orange peel and dark honey flavors mixed with notes of tea and dried mango, my Indian wine lovers will definitely appreciate specially the raw mango notes. Slightly lower in acidity level than I would like, the wine has a beautiful texture and a very nice an smooth finish."

94 Points Wine & Spirits Magazine: “Named for Demeter's daughter, Eszter is a late-harvest wine blended from 70 percent furmint with 30 percent hárslevelű. Deep gold, it's expansively ripe and flavorful, ranging from the zesty prickle of fresh pineapple to soft, fleshy peach, a citrus brightness contrasting the dark spice and caramel richness that wraps around the fruit. It feels clear and bright, with the combination of ease and strength you'd find in a prima ballerina twirling on pointe.
