98pts Decanter
The Royal Tokaji 6 Puttonyos Aszu Gold Label dessert wine has to be tasted to be believed. We fondly refer to it as the nectar of the gods. Don't miss out winelovers.

Decanter:  "Full, complex and multi-layered with candied mango, papaya, honey, peach and sweet spice flavours. Very zesty, mineral finish with gentle sweetness and great length." May 2017

Wine Enthusiast: Designated Cellar Selection. "This ethereal Tokaji Aszú is golden in color, with aromas of delicate acacia flower, honeysuckle, fresh peach and tinned apricot. The flavors come alive on the palate, showing luscious apricot, floral honeycomb and fresh pear juice. The acidity is perfectly balanced to prevent this delightful wine from being too cloying." Dec 2017

Winery: "Rich intense nose with hints of grapefruit and spice. Full flavoured with citrus, peach and apricot fruit and a fine balance of sweetness and acidity and a long, crisp finish.

A perfect vintage with miraculous weather, perfect conditions during autumn for the development of Aszú, misty mornings, warm drying winds blowing across the Great Plain of Hungary and sweeping the mists up into the vineyards.

Excellent quality Aszú berries with good structure and perfect botrytis were macerated in fermenting must for two days. After pressing and fermentation the wines had a perfect balance. Gold Label was filled into 300 or 500 litre second or third fill Hungarian oak casks and transferred down into Royal Tokaji's extensive, deep underground cellars to mature for over two years. The final blend was made during early spring 2016 and the wine bottled in May.

Enjoy at this young age or cellar for future enjoyment as the wine matures. Sip on its own as an aperitif, serve with fruit based desserts or hard cheeses or enjoy this mouth watering wine on its own instead of a dessert. Serving temperature 50 ̊ - 55 ̊F."
