Wine Enthusiast lists Hungarian wine among the top 100 wines in the world, Szeretlekmagyarország reports. The leading wine expert magazine published the list of the 100 best wines on Tuesday, Hungarian Dereszla Winery’s aszú “finished” in 20th place.
Wine Enthusiast is a magazine that was founded in 1988 with the single aim of informing people about the best wines from all over the world. Today, Wine Enthusiast is one of the leading wine expert magazines in the world. According to the magazine’s website, Wine Enthusiast “brings you acclaimed wine ratings and reviews, unique recipes ideas, pairing information, news coverage and helpful guides.”
The magazine published a list of the top 100 wines in the world, and a Hungarian wine was featured on the list. The honour was given to one of Dereszla Winery’s aszú wines, which was listed as the 20th best wine in the world: the 5 puttonyos aszú 2009.
Dereszla Winery is from the Tokaj Wine Region in Hungary.
In their statement they state that the international recognition of their wine is “the success of not only Dereszla Winery, but the success of the whole of the Tokaj Wine Region and the success of the Hungarian wineries as a whole.”
Actually, this is the third time that a Dereszla wine was listed among the best in the world. Dereszla has been featured in other internationally accredited lists as well. For example, their 5 puttonyos aszú 2007 was listed as the 20th best wine in another wine expert magazine, Wine Spectator’s list of the top 100 wines.
