Royal Tokaji - Blue Label 2007
Medium gold in in appearance, with a fine fresh bouquet of orange peel and flowers.
On the palate it has an excellent balance, the sweetness being offset by fine acidity.
Flavours of tropical fruits and oranges with a great length.
A perfect example of a five puttonyos wine.
This 5 puttonyos wine shows the distinctive house style of the Royal Tokaji Wine Company. The wines are blended after careful selection from several Royal Tokaji vineyards.
The skill and traditions of producing Aszu wines have changed little since the 17th Century. Hand picked Aszu berries are macerated with top quality base wines. The resultant Aszu wines mature at different sweetness levels, generally 4, 5 or 6 puttonyos. Careful pruning in the 1st and 2nd Growth vineyards, hand picking and maturation for a minimum of 2 years in Zemplen oak casks in 13th century cellars, ensure these rich, refreshing wines are produced to the highest quality.
This 5 puttonyos wine was fermented 100% in stainless steel tanks with own yeast inoculated, and was aged two and a half years in used oak. For fining bentonite and gelatine were added.
