Vintage of 2018: 2018 is the hottest and earliest ripening vintage we know. The blossoming started on 14th May, the earliest date in Tokaj. The summer was hot and dry but without major heat waves. The maturity was 5 weeks ahead of the average of the last ten years. Despite the heat and the precocity, we were able to maintain the acidity in our grapes. It is a vintage of great quality for Aszú wines, as we could select extremely concentrated, very dried and shrivelled berries.
Lovely gold colour. The very fresh nose reveals stone fruits and floral aromas. Fleshy, quite round in the mouth, with ripe acidity. The finish has an elegant bitterness and minerality. Residual sugar: 136.9 g/l
Outstanding aperitif. Perfect accompaniment to foie gras. Also excellent with sea-fish dishes made with creamy sauce and lemon, duck dishes with fruit, and not so sweet desserts, fruits and cheeses. Ready to drink from the moment it is bottled. Thanks to the barrel ageing, it will develop in complexity during the next ten to fifteen years. To enjoy to its fullest, serve cool (11-13°C). After opening, it can be kept in the fridge for two weeks
