2013 is among the top vintages for Royal Tokaji producing quality dry and sweet wines. The grapes for this wine were large with very thin skins, inviting and getting the desired effects from botrytis cinerea. With delightful and characteristic aromas of honey, apricots and peaches, this wine is also delicate, sweet and graceful on the palate with traces of spice, noble rot, and orange citrus fruit. Elegant and refreshing with a perfectly balanced and long finish. Pair with fruit tarts, foie gras, custards, chocolate desserts, blue and soft cheeses.

As in all aszu wines, the three grape varieties used are Furmint, Hárslevelű and Muscat de Lunel. The quality of the Aszu grapes was excellent, having both nice structure and being perfectly affected by botrytis. Once harvested, they were soaked in already fermenting must, then macerated together for two days. After pressing and completion of fermenting the wine was transferred to an underground cellar. It rested in 300-liter and 500-liter barrels of second and third-use oak to mature further for two years before bottling and release in 2016.
