Highlights of the Tokaj Renaissance


Norbert Csite, formerly of the leading independent Hungarian wineblog "The Educated Alcoholic" wrote the following after the Tokaj Renaissance premier:


"I was impressed by the aszueszencia from Pendits, and I liked the 6 puttonyos aszu by Oremus. But what really blew my fuse was the Alana-Tokaj Muscat. Attila Nemeth has hands made of gold. This wine is out-of-this-world beautiful, with a cool fruity fragrance, touch of tartness, great momentum on the attack, with loads of flavor, fine minerality, and an unending finish. Simply spectacular."

His co-author Csaba Jonas added a bit of flair and passion:

"So far, my wine of the year is the Muscat by Attila Nemeth of Alana-Tokaj. I hear that the couple hundred bottles he made will end up in the US. That's what I call squandering our national treasures. The 2005 Muscat by Alana-Tokaj was one of the highlights of the Tokaj Renaissance - refined, elegant, a classic beauty.... I have said this before several times, and I have no reason to change my mind: here is a talent rarely handed down by God. ... Attila Nemeth is the uncrowned king of Muscat. For me, the 2005 is a milestone."
