It is unnecessary for upscale Essencias to state tasting notes, since there is such a diverse range of flavors which makes any comment needless. The number of points, together with the maturity, speak for themselves. 450g of residual sugar and 14.8g of acid. 19.5/20 points.“
Sigi Hiss, wine writer, tokaji.ch, December 2012

„...Cognac-coloured. Cognac nose also. Candied lemon, egg yolk, lightly roasted honey, pine, some baked apple, some dandelion, caramel... Outstanding."
