  • Vintage Report

    • A perfect vintage with miraculous weather, perfect conditions during autumn for the development of Aszú – misty mornings, warm drying winds blowing across the Great Plain of Hungary and sweeping the mists up into the vineyards.

  • Vinification

    • Harvested from Royal Tokaji exclusively owned vineyards, excellent quality Furmint Aszú berries with good structure and perfect botrytis were macerated in fermenting Furmint must for two days. After pressing, the wine was filled into three 300-litre old Hungarian oak casks and transferred down into Royal Tokaji’s extensive, deep underground cellars to mature for 23 months. The final blend was made in the early spring of 2016 and bottled in May.

    • Rich intense nose with hints of orange and spice. Full flavored with citrus, pear, and quince fruit, with outstanding structure, and a long, crisp finish.
