95 points Wine Spectator: "A racy style, oozing dried apricot and orange peel aromas, with candied orange and butterscotch flavors. The bracing acidity works in tandem with the chalky feel, releasing on the marmalade and vanilla finish. Drink now through 2035." 146 cases made. -BS(Web Only - 2009) The largest of Royal Tokaji's first growth vineyards, Betsek Vineyard is shaped like a half-moon and tilted northeast.

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.
