    Matyisak pince

    December 3, 2016 in Hungary

    Vacsi után borkostolas a helyi Matyisak pinceben Matyisak Gáborral aki egykor az Andrássy borasza volt de ma már önálló Businesst folytat- elsosorban a japán és kínai piac meghódításával. Nem mindennapi figura, story storyt követ. Miközben kostolunk,megismerjük az aszu világ rejtelmeit, többek között az Aszú szótárat:
    9-120g cukor/l: 4 puttonyos
    120-150g/l: 5 puttonyos
    150-180g/l: 6 puttonyos
    180g felett aszú esszencia (és natúr esszencia 600g/l cukor, alkohol nélkül).
    A Matyisak borokat alacsony kentartalom jellemzi (190 mg, Mo-on 490 a maximum), azaz hála az égnek nem fog fájni a fejünk tőle!!!! :)
    Kostolunk jegbort is, amihez, mint kiderül,a szőlőszemeket akar decemberben, mindenkeppen fagyban szüretelik. (Ezt se tudtam, h ettől lesz JÉGbor.)

    Kóstolás sorrend: Száraz Furmint, Édes Furmint, Jegbor, Szamorodni (dohány ízű), 2008as 5puttonyos aszú (pörkölt vanília:), 6puttonyos aszú (2000), Aszú esszencia (amiből napi egy kávéskanal biztosítja a szukseges penicillin mennyiséget).Nagyon finomak voltak de a végére összetapadt a szánk a sok edestol...mindenesetre a kóstolás abszolút nem volt mindennapi!

    Day 241: Tokaj Wine Region

    October 13, 2017 in Hungary

    Still feeling awful today, very clogged and tired - not much sleep due to coughing and nose running. Plus our hotel room was very stuffy and warm; we ran the air conditioner on cold all night but it's designed as a heater so it doesn't do much. And of course we couldn't open the windows because the houses directly across the road were home to a bunch of barking dogs who would constantly set off Schnitzel.

    So we set off into the wine country: tired, sick and irritable. Found a few vantage spots to film and talk, amongst pretty vineyards and with nice little buildings scattered around. It's interesting since the Tokaj hill is basically the first hill north of the plains, so driving just a little way up meant that you could see for miles across endless fields and grazing country. Cool.

    The reason it's UNESCO listed is because this is one of the first places in the world where stringent QC requirements were imposed on the produce. The local sweet wine (aszu) is made from grapes afflicted by Noble Rot (ie botritus), and was declared to be the official wine of the King of Hungary in the 1760s I think. So for it to be his official wine, very strict standards were enforced on the growth and production of the wine. Interesting step.

    Another cool thing about the wine here is that since it's so cold in winter, the cellars are all dug into the volanic hills to keep the temperature consistent. We drove out to one spot where there were scores of cellars dug into a hill, though most of them looked disused now.

    Got our filming done by mid-afternoon and headed back to the hotel where I had another nap and Shandos had a swim in the hotel pool. Last stop for the day was of course, wine tasting! One of the largest cellars in town was just nearby, so we booked in for that at 5pm. Interesting to note that unlike in Australia, wine tasting usually costs money and is by appointment rather than just turning up. Less pressure to buy I guess.

    So we turned up and were shown down into the old wine cellar which was a phenomenal space. They didn't even know how old it was, just that it was first mentioned in the 1500s in a document that indicated it was already old at that point! And there was something like 1500 metres of tunnels running off the main hall, all used for storing wine. Though not anymore, they have a proper modern facility for doing that elsewhere in the region of course.

    We tried six wines, all white and mostly very sweet - even the non-dessert wines were sugary! I didn't mind as I generally prefer sweet wine over dry, but I don't think Shandos enjoyed it as much. Had a nice chat to the girl running the tour as well, and took some good footage. Eventually we left (without purchasing) and had another dinner in our hotel restaurant before turning in.

    Anyukám mondta

    December 3, 2016 in Hungary

    Szokásos csajos wellness hétvége indul! Konczo Berlinből, Zsu Brüsszelből csatlakozott, így hatan (Nono, Kingu, Veronka, a két külhonba szakadt leányzó és jómagam) vágtunk neki a hetvegenek.
    Első állomás: Szentendre- Nonoek csuda háza, kavezas, majd indulás Encsre, az Anyukám mondta etterembe.
    Utat végig dumaltuk- van mit pótolni.:)
    Az étterem nagyon hangulatos- fa mennyezet, kandallo, színes puha székek, nagyon családias. Előétel isteni pizza - szerintem ez volt a csúcspont, meg Veronek vaddiszno raguja- majd én oratat ettem, desszertnek gesztenye mousse es az igazi espresso. (Mindezt gyöngyöző borral kiserve, Zsu ugyanis gavaller módon felajánlotta h vezeti az autómat. Ekkor meg nem tudtam, h kérdéses lehet, h melyik a kuplung.:))))Read more

    Pancsolás, vacsi, hedó

    December 3, 2016 in Hungary

    Encs után tele hassal meg egy fel óra kocsikazas, majd érkezés a szállodába, ami tényleg nagyon szép és nagyon kurias.:)
    Szobák elfoglalása után azonnal irány a wellness: van itt minden, szaunáktol, meleg koagyakon keresztül a barlangos jacuzziig (utóbbi tok olyan mint a tavalyi sielesen Bad Ischlben). Tiszta relax. Nekem egyedul a szauna szeansz hiányzik, de azért így is tulelheto.:)
    Miután kiwellnesseljuk magunkat, jöhet az isteni vacsi (meg hogy nem tudunk enni az Anyukám mondta után, hahaha:))), egyik fogás sem okoz csalódást.

    Maria Gyuláné Simon
    It reminds me to the sunshine comes through the window after night and I hope to remember that after dark always comes the light.

    "Dear Heidi and Peter,
    Thank you for the chance to get this nice picture, I wish you all the best for 2015!
    Kind regards,
    Maria
