DERESZLA ASZÚ IN WINE ENTHUSIAST’S TOP 100 FOR 2017

0

Dereszla's 2009 Aszú 5 puttonyos has been awarded 20th place in Wine Enthusiast's top 100 wines for 2017. Having scored 95 points and picked as an Editor's Choice, this wine is the only one from Hungary on this year's list.

Bodrogkeresztúr-based Dereszla was founded by CANA and then owned for some 16 years by the D'Aulan family until its recent purchase by Hungarian entrepreneur Lőrinc Mészáros. The winery has two production facilities, one in the village that makes the botrytised wines, and a new one, also known as Henye, on the outskirts of the village, where their still and sparkling whites are vinified. Dereszla is one of the region's largest companies, producing not far off a million bottles a year, over 80 per cent of which is sold outside Hungary.

This same Aszú had won a gold at DWWA 2016 with 97 points.
