« It is obvious that 2013 is among top vintages for Royal Tokaji regarding the quality of both dry and sweet wines, especially Aszú, as already predicted by the grapes' large berry size and their thin skin by the middle of July. It had been several years since such a top vintage for botrytis and Aszú, but it was well worth the wait – only time will tell if 2013 proves to be one of the all-time greats, but it is certainly exceptional and has produced brilliant Royal Tokaji Aszú wines. »

The excellent quality Aszú berries, with nice structure and perfect botrytis, were soaked in fermenting must and macerated together for two days. After pressing and fermenting the wine to the perfect balance, it was transferred to our underground cellar for two year barrel maturation in 300 and 500 liters second and third used oak barrels. We did the final blendings at the beginning of summer 2016th by bottling the wine in September.

Flavours range from apple to peach to pear, with the caramel and honey richness of great dessert wines, as well as floral and spice aromas – they pretty much deliver the whole flavour wheel of complexity. It blows your mind.
