Golden, young Aszú with a supremely refined inner world. Citrus and meadow flowers abound in the nose. The wine lover senses caramel, citrus and dried fruits, and white horehound on the palate with the discreet appearance of buttery, almond notes of barrel ageing. The typical minerality of Tokaji wine brings a slight saltiness to this drinkable wine thanks to its delightful acids. Elegant this promises to be a great wine with serious ageing potential.
Harvest we harvested the aszú berries from the end of October – till the end of November

2006 A beautiful vintage in which little sweet wine was made. Spring arrived late, autumn was dry and hot. The aszú berries formed late.
