Tokaji Essencia is a sweet wine speciality made with only the free-run juice of individually selected, hand-picked botrytised berries. Eszencia is renowned as the best portrayer of terroir, and this nectar of unparalleled complexity is a true gem for wine lovers.
An intense and concentrated flavour with an explosion of luscious tropical fruit and beguiling honeyed notes. It has a creamy, mouth-filling character, while the racy acidity keeps this a perfectly balanced, finely poised vintage. There is a rich minerality to every sip, indicative of the volcanic terroir of Tokaj, and the finish will stay with you for well over a minute. The wine is still very young and will continue to develop as long as you can resist drinking it.
Serve this unique wine with a deep, salty blue cheese, luxurious goose liver or cured mangalitza ham and create a very special moment of gourmet indulgence.
