2016 Royal Tokaji, 5 Puttonyos aszú 0,5 LUdsolgt
Intense nose with lots of botrytis. Great structure with flavours of lime, citrus and peaches, a fine balance of richness, racy acidity and a long finish.
After late spring frosts, a fine summer and good botrytisation in autumn we harvested concentrated, intensely-flavoured grapes and Aszú berries - quality was exceptional, in fact so fine that we were able produce our full range of Aszú 1st and Great 1st Growths for the first time since 2008.
These outstanding Aszú berries with good structure and perfect botrytis were macerated in fermenting must for two days. After pressing and finishing fermentation, the wines were filled into 300 and 500 litre Hungarian oak casks in our extensive, deep, underground cellars to mature for over two years. The final blends were carefully crafted in the spring of 2019.
Enjoy now or cellar for future enjoyment as the wine matures. Síp as an aperitif, serve with fruit based desserts or hard cheeses or enjoy this mouth-watering wine on its own instead of a dessert. Serve cool.
