The Wine of Lovers. Dedicated to Maria Zwack, Endre Ady’s – one of Hungary’s most famous poets – great love and muse.
Dobogó Mylitta 2007 was harvested from the 30 year old vineyards of Betsek in Mád and Palota in Tállya. Mylitta Álma basis wine is a selection of shrivelled and botrytised grapes. The clusters are gently pressed and we add 1 kg aszu berries into 1 liter fermenting must. After the fermentation and 32 months barrel aging we bottled the 533 bottles in August, 2010.
Mylitta Álma is not just something to drink with a starter of a nibble of blue cheese; it will go magnificently with many courses: anything with a sweet and sour sauce, a fruit garnish (citrus or tropical), or with spicy foods that involve curry, ginger or cardamom. Last but not least, it makes the perfect way to round off a meal: the crowning moment of the feast. The wine is at its best when slightly chilled, at around 12-13°C.
