1999 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company Nyulászó 6 Puttonyos (500ml)

SKU #1041613

93 points Wine Spectator: "A broader style, showing fresh peach, apricot, mango and kumquat notes. There's good underlying acidity, but with sweetness and flesh to match it. Has a fine, refreshing finish. Furmint, Hárslevelü and Muscat. Drink now through 2030. 235 cases made." (06/08) Nyulaszo has always produced aszu wines that have contributed most to the house style of Royal Tokaji. Its 18 hectares, to the east of Mad, are contiguous with the St Tamas vineyard. The translation in English is 'to catch hares'. Its red volcanic topsoil produces very elegant, lively wines. Incredible depth of flavours make this vineyard a favourite with Burgundy lovers. Nyulaszo is one of the most sought after vineyards, though the name is not easy to pronounce. It is a favorite at the Windsor Castle!

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.
