Château Dereszla was founded in the 15th century. The D’Aulan family from France took over the Estate in 2000 with the strong belief that the winery needed to be revived. Dereszla cultivates about 60 hectares, located in the Tokaji Wine Region in Hungary, which is part of the UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 2002. The vineyards are in 8 different locations. This diversity creates perfect conditions for blending and producing exceptional sweet dessert wines as well as high quality dry white wines.
“This golden-colored wine has enticing aromas of butterscotch, vanilla, caramel and pineapple upside-down cake. In the mouth, there are great flavors of dried apricot, mango, honeycomb and marzipan candies. It has elegant heft on the palate and balanced acidity in the finish. Enjoy now or keep in our cellar for another decade or so.”
