About Royal Tokaji 2013 Tokaji Aszu, 5 Puttonyos, 500ml

The historic and esteemed dessert wine, Tokaji Aszu over the centuries has satisfied the sweet tooths of Tsars, Emperors and Kings. Royal Tokaji was inspired and founded in 1990 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. Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, combining traditional techniques with modern technology to create an award-winning range of wines.


For this wine excellent quality Aszú berries (botrytis affected Furmint and Harslevelu varieties), 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 barrels for two year barrel maturation in 300 and 500 liters second and third use oak.


Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored this 96 points saying "Straw colored with gold reflections, this delightful sweet wine has aromas of dried pear, fresh apricot and yellow peach. Flavors of fresh Bartlett pear, acacia honey and tinned apricots unfold on the palate. The finish is sweet, with just the right amount of acidity."


Decanter Magazine also scored it 96 points saying "Complex wine bursting with mandarin, nectarine and poached peach flavours, refreshed by juicy acidity. Soft, complex, creamy and long - delicious!"
