SKU #1148298 94 points Wine Spectator

 The vivid acidity defines this mineral-laden, sweet Tokaji, which offers a mix of dried citrus, orange peel, antique furniture and smoky mineral flavors wrapped around a tight core. The finish evokes hard citrus candy and baked earth accents. Best from 2012 through 2040. 800 cases made. –BS  (10/2010)

Rich and spicy with toasted nuts and stone fruit. A well knit core of texture and vibrant lift on the back end. Even though this has plenty of weighty sweetness it is bright and cheery.

Hungary

- 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.
