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.

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.

Grape / Blend

Furmint, Hárslevelű



Tasting Notes
A delightful nose of honey and peaches, delicate and graceful on the palate with traces of spice and citrus fruit. Very elegant and refreshing with a crisp, long finish, perfectly balanced.
