Sorry, sold out
Our Notes: Even after 12 years, this wine carries the strong character of the 2000 vintage - earlier than average budding and blooming was followed by a long and dry summer. Both Furmint and Hárslevelű ripened fast allowing for healthy grapes before botrytization. An exceptional aszú grape harvest. Texturally, and largely due to slow oxidation and lack of topping, the 2000 exhibits a full bodied and creamy mouth feel that is kept from becoming cloying due to the ever-present acidic backbone. This kind of balance between high sugar, high acid and low alcohol are what make Tokaji magical. Pair with strong flavors.

Alc. by Vol. 12,5 % - Sugar Content: 138 g/l - Tartaric acid: 7,2 g/l - 500ml
