  • Vintage Report

    • After a cold winter, temperatures rose rapidly in April and May, stimulating vigorous growth in the vines. Summer heat accelerated even more growth and ripening. Harvest was the earliest in living memory, providing good quantities with excellent quality. Aszú berries from the rare Kabar variety were picked on the 6th and 7th of August, the earliest ever in Royal Tokaji’s history. Good botrytis levels, outstanding acidity with ripe and rich texture.

  • Vinification

    • After two days of maceration and pressing, the wine was filled into eight 300-litre Hungarian oak casks and transferred down into Royal Tokaji’s extensive, deep underground cellars to mature for 28 months. The final blend was made in May 2021.
