  • Introduction

    • Single-Vineyard
      First Growth, 6 Puttonyos

  • Vineyard Profile

    • Szt. Tamás is a neighboring estate to Nyulászó. The average age of the vines is 25 years and Royal Tokaji owns 6.5 hectares. The vineyard has gradients between 12 and 15 degrees and it faces southwest. The soil is volcanic tufa and the height is 110 meters above sea level.

  • Vinification

    • The skill and traditions of producing Aszú wines have changed little since the 17th century. Hand-picked aszú berries are macerated with top-quality base wines. The resultant Aszú wines mature at different sweetness levels, generally 4, 5 or 6 puttonyos. Careful pruning in the first- and second-growth vineyards amongst their 80 hectares, hand picking and maturation for a minimum of three years in goncï casks in 13th-century cellars, ensure these rich, refreshing wines are produced to the highest quality.

  • Szt. Tamás, 6 Puttonyos, Tokaj – 1993 – Decanter

    This first growth Tokaji from the wonderful 1993 vintage is a favourite of Beverly Blanning MW. “The incredible rich, sweet palate combines smooth, cool, mushroomy flavours and zesty, orange marmalade fruit,” she says. “It is full, with deliciously refreshing acidity and endless length.”
