Tokay

Hungary

Hungay’s Tokaj region is famous for its unique dessert wine Tokaji. The ham-shaped region is located in the northeast of Hungary, near the border with Slovakia. Made up of approximately 30 small towns and villages, it is roughly the same size as Burgundy's Cote d'Or.  At its very southern edge is the town of Tokaj from which the region and its wines ultimate take their name. The grape varieties used to make Tokaji wines are Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat Blanc. The aszú (botrytized) wines for which Tokaj is renowned  are made from grapes affected by benevolent Botrytis cinerea fungus. This beneficial fungus dehydrates the grape berries, concentrating their sugars and leaving a trademark honeysuckle aroma in the wine.
