Complex & Sweet
This award winning wine, ranking silver medal for 2018 by Decanter. This wine is known for its late-harvest, meaning these grapes are over-ripe providing its signature sweetness. These grapes are hand-picked from the best crus in Tokaj in late November, each varietal is picked separately then fermented all together in stainless steel aged without the presence of wood, curating its award-winning balance of sweetness and refined acidity. Notes of tree fruit dominate the nose and palate such as, apricot, pear and peach with subtle notes of marmalade. The nose is full of waxy nuances lush with honey and beeswax.
