Royal Tokaji Aszu Mezes Maly 6 Puttonyos Tokay Hungary 1993

Winemaker's Notes:

Mezes Maly, in the Tarcal commune, had the distinction of being classified as one of only two vineyards to be elevated to the equivalent of Great 1st growth in the Rakoczi classification of 1700. Situated on loess soil on a south facing slope, this famous vineyard is now enjoying a renaissance of its own. Mezes Maly’s characteristics are based around its translation as ‘honey pot'. Its incredibly long and exquisitely balanced aromas and flavours combine the very essence of aszu wines. Mezes Maly's 11 hectares are jointly owned by the company and Hugh Johnson.
