About the Producer

During the period of Communist rule in Hungary (1939-1945), the production of high-quality Tokaji wines declined and nearly became extinct due to a focus on quantity over quality. However, since the fall of Communism and the establishment of The Royal Tokaji Wine Company in 1989, a partnership between local wine growers in Mád and international investors, there has been a resurgence of these fine wines.

Vineyard and Winery

After a late start, a warm and pleasant June led to an ideal mid-month flowering. Summer began hot but temperatures dropped towards the end of August and it remained unseasonably cool in early September. This weather prolonged ripening and maintained freshness and we waited until the first days of October before completing harvest, encouraging wines with very bold structure, excellent minerality, depth and balance.

Whole bunches were pressed and then fermented partly in stainless steel tanks, partly in barrels (15% new oak). After fermentation both lots remained in their vessels on fine lees for further maturation to add subtle overtones and complexity.
