In this wine, the two main grape varieties of the Tokaj region were blended in a 55% to 45% ratio. The Furmint, which makes up the larger quantity in the blend, was fermented in barrels, while the Hárslevelű was made reductively, exclusively in tanks. After blending the two separate batches, the wine was further aged for 3 months in barrels made from Zemplén oak, and then bottled.

The winter was much milder and drier than average. The spring season brought the rain expected. The temperature was appropriate for the season, but turned extremely hot by the end of May. The temperature during the summer months was as we expected, this was only occasionally interrupted by torrential storms, which caused serious erosion damage. The harvest began on 4 September. The weather during the harvest was extremely fovourable, therefore, in addition to the excellent base wines for champagne, exceptionally beautiful Aszú wines were also produced this year.  

The name “Naparany”, meaning "Sun gold" is derived from a poem by the well-known Hungarian poet László Nagy, entitled “Elhúllt bolondok nyomán” (In the wake of dead fools), which was dedicated to Dr. József Béres Sr.
