ABOUT THIS WINE
The excellent quality Aszú berries achieved perfect botrytis and 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 an underground cellar for two year barrel maturation in 300 and 500 liters second and third used oak barrels. The final blends were carefully crafted in the spring of 2020.
ABOUT THIS PRODUCER
The Royal Tokaji Wine Company, founded in Hungary in 1990, has become one of the most defining wineries in Tokaj.
