From the finest producer of Hungary's great Tokaji, this is a very rare 6 Puttonyos Single Vineyard sweetie. Made like Sauternes from noble rot grapes, it's intensely honeyed with hints of apricot, quince and rapier like freshness. Quite magnificent.

Ripe apple, lemon, apricot, quince, with spice, herbs
Tokaji is the ancient wine of Hungary, once served at all the royal courts of Europe. However, it fell from grace as communism took hold last century. The great Hugh Johnson and fellow devotees bided their time, then when the curtain was lifted, were first in to invest significantly in rebuilding its reputation. They formed the Royal Tokaji Company, today’s leaders in Tokaji, cultivated the best Grand Cru sites (one of which is Betsek) and revived the great tradition. Their 6 Puttonyos is hardly ever made and, as a Single Vineyard, is even rarer. Like Sauternes, it uses noble rot grapes - the larger the Puttonyos, the greater the noble rot portion. This is a masterpiece of intense sweetness and acidity, with layers of remarkable flavour.
"Green apples, citrus and lemon zest are dusted with peppery spices on the palate, fresh and inviting"
