Tokaji Essencia the Royal Tokaji Wine Company 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Berry Bros & Rudd review:<br/>Essencia is the richest and rarest of all Hungarian 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 2% alcohol. Essencia can reach 85% residual sugar. Essencia wine is legendary. The millennium magic also shone on Tokaj that have never before witnessed two great consecutive vintages such as the 1999 and 2000. Vintage 2000 yielded wines of stunning concentration and balance. This wine displays a rich, fat mouthfeel of honey, apricots and marmalade with uplifting acidity to balance out the sweetness. An ideal partner to foie gras.
