In one of my previous positions, I was able to visit this winery and spend about 3 days in the Tokaji region of Hungary. There's so much to say about this wine, one could write a book on it. Indeed quite a few people have. Suffice to say, Tokaji is one of, if not the, greatest desert wines on the planet. If you've never tried one, you owe it to yourself to do so. And the Royal Tokaji Wine Company is an excellent producer to start with.

Golden honey color with aromas of apricot, honey, alcohol. On the palate viscous, with apricot, honey and faint mineral notes. Long finish.

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.
