Thick, but not syrupy. Its set of acids is close to a miracle in its own right. Completely timeless. In the taste it is complex with roast malt coffee, tobacco, leaf litter, dried fruit, vanilla, green tea, apricot jam, orange peel, orange petal, chocolate. Contemplating the fact that the wine is more than 70 years old today is completely pointless in this case. Most probably it will reflect the same endless harmony to those who consume it twenty years from now, and that it did so twenty years ago as well. This wine is like a grand, if not so old dame who still goes hiking and bike riding, and can still put on her engagement dress.

„Aromas of tobacco leaves, dried fruit, vanilla, green tea, apricot jam, orange peel, orange blossom, chocolate. Surprisingly fresh with lively and graceful acidity, light, combined with a creamy body. Caramelized honey, aniseed and vanilla flavors are of course very present as well.“

„Although not a good year for the entire region, with below average temperature and sun, this fine wine was probably from Szarvas vineyard grapes which have superior quality Aszú berries in most years. Hazelnut notes, rounded, full, rich syrup and nectar on the palate. Balance in bouquet and flavour corresponding to its age.“

Just Said ...

„Listen then, your grace; his majesty the King of Sweden -
I beg pardon, the Count Haga
I should have said - drinks nothing but tokay.” - „Well, am I so poor as to have no tokay in my cellar? If so, I must dismiss my butler.”
from „The Queen's Necklace”

(1802-1870)
