Royal Tokaji True Essencia 1999

Winemaker's Notes:

Essencia is the richest and rarest of all Tokaji wines. It is the truest expression of terroir known to man. Typically, this free run juice takes 6 to 8 years to complete its fermentation to less than 3% alcohol. Essencia can reach 85% residual sugar. Essencia is legendary. Essencia 1999 is presented in numbered bottles in a brass hinged wooden box complete with a traditional crystal spoon.

The Royal Tokaji winery was started in 1990. This is the rarest of wines in the world. So thick and concentrated, it took well over 6 months just to ferment. Comes with a crystal sipping spoon that will serve 33 lucky mouths. This is the best vintage out since the fabulous '93's.
