Gróf Degenfeld
Terézia kert 9.

app. 6km
.
An individual tour for 4 of us
by a student
.
Short visit to the winery
.
and to the wine cellar
.
Wine tasting of 6 wines

Tokaj Furmint 2007, dry
- a bit ugly smell and taste
.
Tokaji Muscat Lunel 2008, semi dry
- light, acidy
- sweet bouquet but not sweetyness in the taste
- quite nice
Tokaji Hárslevelű 2007, semi sweet
- kind of girlish wine
Tokaji Fortissimo 2007, sweet
- beautiful golden colour
- easy, sweet wine
Tokaji Aszú 3 puttonyos 2004, sweet

Gróf Degenfeld Mansion Hotel
In the 1994 the Degenfeld family decided
to revive the old winery
and purchased vineyards
and an ancient cellar in Tarcal.
.
Downstairs of the building
there are a restaurant
and different function rooms
.
Nice swimming pool in the garden
.
Had lunch outside on the terrace

Perfect warm September day
.
Norwegian salmon with saffron sauce
& a grilled shrimp
- beautiful portion,
but the salmon had a range grey colour,
eatable but not tasty at all
- probably been in freeze for too long time...
.
Quite beautiful, posh place,
but something missing
the atmosphere not so pleasant
- the wine tasting & tour very avarage,
absolutely nothing special
.
