Kiralyudvar Tokaji Pezsga Brut Sparkling 2017
The historic wine-producing region of Tokaj lies 220 km northeast of Budapest, Hungary along the Bodrog and Tisza Rivers. Located at the geographical center of Europe, this UNESCO World Heritage site covers over 5,000 hectares around twenty-six villages that include Mád, Bodrogkeresztúr and Tállya.
A hidden gem tucked into the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains, Tokaj has proven its viticultural worth for centuries. A unique climate of early autumn rains and long Indian summers provides an extended ripening period creating a paradise for winemaking. Volcanic activity from the past has helped shape special terroirs on the hills throughout the region. Natural cellars carved deep into the ancient rock provide the ideal environment for the aging of Tokaji wines.
Inspired by Huët’s revered Pétillant, Tony Hwang introduced this fascinating sparkling wine in 2007. Peszsgo is local dialect for "sparkling" and Henye is the name of an historic, lauded vineyard in the area.
