2013 Royal Tokaji SZT. Tamás Single Vineyard 6 Puttonyos Aszú First Growth....$132.99
Brilliant gold-flecked-amber in the glass, this Hungarian stunner hails from the Szt. Tamas vineyard located on one of Tokaj's most iconic hills. It has aromas of wildflower honey, ripe peach, honeysuckle blossom, freshly sliced apricot and acacia flowers. It is an ethereal blend of Furmint, Harslevelü and Muscat. Silky smooth on entry, it offers enticing flavors of white peach, apricot preserves, honeycomb and acacia honey. It has beautiful heft on the palate with balanced acidity and crisp minerality. The elegant sweetness is perfectly foiled by bracing acidity and crispness in the finish. This is how Hungarian Tokaj Aszü wine should be made. Drink through 2045.
Rated 100/100 The Wine Enthusiast
