Producer : SZENT TAMÁS
Mád is one of Tokaji’s most prestigious villages, and remains mostly composed of plots of small growers. In recent years, the aim has been to raise the viticultural standard of the growers. By guaranteeing their grapes be purchased for a fair price, the village wines are now consistently made from the highest quality grapes. This wine, by the historic Szent Tamas winery, is designed as a benchmark representation of the village Mád.
Szent Tamas has a very long history in the region. Current winemaker Istvan Szepsy Jr is the 18th generation to work on the integrated area, with over 100 families of the village and leading his team in the winery. His father, Istvan Szepsy Snr, is probably the most influential winemaker in Hungary. The winery works with strict yields and only the healthiest grapes. Their wines are concentrated and complex, bursting with natural minerality; the vineyards shaped by volcanic eruptions millions of years ago.
