Tokaji Eszencia is traditionally made using only the free-run juice of individually selected, hand-picked botrytised berries. Eszencia is known to be the best portrayer of terroir, this nectar of unparalleled complexity is a true gem for wine lovers.
Intense, concentrated flavour profile with a creamy, mouth-filling character, an explosion of fruit and honeyed notes and a racy acidity that keeps the balance finely poised. There is a rich minerality to the wine, indicative of the volcanic terroir of Tokaj and the finish will last with you well over a minute. The wine is still very young and will continue to develop for as long as you can resist drinking.
