Notes/Facts: Szamorodni is Hungarian dialect for “as is” or “as it comes”. As the grower waits for the berries to achieve acceptable levels of noble rot, some of the earlier passing picks in the vineyard go into the making of this entry level and value version of Tokaji without the designation of “aszu”.
