Royal Tokaji, 5 Puttonyos Aszu, Hungary, 2013 50CL

£27.00

Acknowledged as one of the region's top winemakers, Karoly Ats combines traditional techniques with modern technology to create the award-winning Royal Tokaji range. Tokaji is produced by blending hand-picked shrivelled or 'aszu' berries with top quality base wines. A medium amber colour with a nose of orange peel, figs and cinnamon. The sugar on the palate is well-balanced by the fine acidity, leading to a clean, refreshing finish. Will continue to improve over several years but drink now, slightly chilled, with blue cheeses or fruit desserts.

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 litres second and third used oak barrels.
