Royal Tokaji 6 Puttonyos Aszu has a rich intense nose with hints of orange peel and spice. Very fine and elegant wine, full-flavoured with vibrant acidity, citrus and peach on the palate with a long, balanced finish.

Summer was hot, so we began the Aszú berry harvest in early September and continued to pick steadily in the ideal autumn weather. In particular October provided three textbook weeks for the development of fine quality Aszú, with day after day of early morning mists, afternoon sunshine and drying winds. The Aszú wines show great structure, plenty of botrytis, depth and freshness with excellent complexity, all attributes of long ageing potential.

Fine quality Aszú berries with good structure and perfect botrytis were macerated in fermenting must for two days. After pressing and finishing fermentation the wines were filled into 300 and 500 litre Hungarian oak casks in our extensive, deep, underground cellars to mature for over two years. The final blends were carefully crafted in the spring of 2020. Enjoy now 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.
Serve cool.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

A mystery of a wine region, whose potential is only starting to be fully released again by the fine wine world, Tokaji is, in our belief, the best and most excting sweet wine region in the world.

The most instrumental producer in this miraculous resurgence is undoubtedly Royal Tokaji. Voted one of the World’s Most Admired Wine Brands by Drinks International, it was founded by celebrated wine writer Hugh Johnson and was the first foreign company to invest in the historic region after the collapse of the Soviet Union. Today, they produce an amazing range of wines that make Sauternes quake in their boots.

From the outset, Royal Tokaji focused on producing single-vineyard wines made from the first-growth sites of Mezes Maly, Nyulaszo, Szt Tamas, and Betsek. These wines are in a league of their own and are highly coveted by collectors and enthusiasts alike. And these exceptional site productions are made only produced in exceptional years.
