SKU #1041607

95 points Wine Spectator: "Positively electric. The racy style of the vintage shows in this laserlike Tokaji. The searing acidity is matched by intense flavors of apricot, orange peel, juniper, cedar and mineral. Has fine length. Drink now through 2030." 89 cases made. -BS (Web Only - 2007) Szt. Tamás Vineyard (saint tä-määsh) is on a stony hill of reddish clay and volcanic rocks sloping southwest and overlooking Royal Tokaji's cellars in Mád, Hungary. The vines are currently 15-28 years old, however, the older vines will soon be taken out to make room for a single 4-hectare (10 acre) plot planted to carefully selected clones. Wines produced from grapes grown in the Szt. Tamás Vineyard are some of the richest and most flavorful wines from this area. 60% Furmint, 20% Muscat, 20% Harslevelu.

Additional Information:



- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
