A wonderfully complex Aszú from an exceptional vintage. Refined perfume and slightly cool elegance embody this shining amber wine. Minerality, meadow flowers and white fruits offer themselves in the nose. On tasting exciting layers present themselves one after another: peppermint, dried apricot, candied orange peel. Alongside the dried fruits delightful acids and liqueur notes define its character. A burnished, rounded, unique, mature Aszú.
