Overview of the Wine
The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded in Hungary in 1990, has become one of the most defining wineries in Tokaj. From the outset, Royal Tokaji decided to concentrate on producing single-vineyard wines, made from the first growth vineyards of Mézes Mály, Nyulászó, Szt. Tamás and Betsek. Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, combining traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range of wines. Royal Tokaji is the acknowledged leader of the renaissance of this legendary Hungarian wine, which, in the words of the wine author and company co-founder Hugh Johnson, is "a wine that would make angels sing out loud in praise".

Royal Tokaji was inspired and founded by Hugh Johnson, the noted author and wine historian, whose goal was to revive and bring back to international acclaim the wines of one of history’s most renowned wine regions.

Royal Tokaji remains in private ownership and today our wines are exported to more than 30 countries.

The wines of Royal Tokaji have won over 100 international awards and continue to seduce wine lovers throughout the world.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
Summer was hot with temperatures often above 35℃, again accelerating maturation and the grapes ripened and were ready for picking earlier than ever before in the written history of Tokaji. We started the grape harvest for the dry wines in August, an extraordinary three weeks earlier than the previous record, and we picked the last Furmint grapes for dry styles at the beginning of September, a date usually considered early for the start of the harvest for dry wines, let alone the finish.

After harvesting the Furmint grapes, whole bunches were pressed and fermented in 300 litre Zemplén oak barrels. After fermentation the wine was matured for six months in oak.

Mézes Mály Furmint is a sleek, concentrated wine with elegancy and a subtle floral character, hints of spice, and plenty of white peach and apricot fruit all balanced by refreshing, crisp acidity and a lingering finish.
Serve at a cool temperature with Asian food, white meats, fish and pasta dishes.
