Disznókő Tokaji Eszencia 2007

Tokaji Eszencia is such an unusual and mythic wine, I'll include the winery’s complete notes here for reference.

A unique and historical vintage: an exceptionally mild winter followed by a very hot summer. Early budding, flowering and ripening, with rain during the harvest bringing plenty of botrytis that spread over the perfectly-ripened grapes. This gave wonderfully creamy aszú grapes. The wines are complex and elegant with a pleasant structure and lush flavours.

At the end of each picking day, the one-by-one-collected aszú grapes were collected in small stainless steel vats and stored until the end of October. This Eszencia is the free-run juice coming from the weight of the aszú berries. Beside the superconcentration of the aszú berries, we had proportionally more Eszencia than usual, due to the light, botrytised character of the aszú berries. These incredibly rich nectars were then poured into demijohns of 50 litres.

A deep gold colour with a lot of finesse and elegance on the nose: toffee, green tea, herbal aromas, wildflower honey, candied fruits. The palate is super rich, with caramel, honey, toffee notes, amazingly creamy and mouth-filling texture. Very pure. The after taste gives the reminiscence of herbal tea, candies, fine aged cognac and caffè latte.

Alcohol: 1%
Residual sugar: 681 g/l
Total acidity: 10.7 g/l

Eszencia is a unique wine for its richness and concentration, the memory of the vintage perfectly reflects the character of the aszú berries. A sip offers a snapshot of the vintage, a journey into uncharted territory, an intimate treat for the closest moments. It is best appreciated slightly cool (15°C). Thanks to its high natural sugar content, it can be kept in the fridge for years after opening. Ready to drink, Disznókő Tokaji Eszencia can be kept for a very long time.
