Tokay Eszencia 1993

Winemaker's Notes:

that is the rich juice of the aszú grapes dripping out because of their own weight. This is a real nectar, its sugar content is between 500-700 gr/lit, with hints of honey, fruit-jam and flowers in the nose. The richest Eszencia we ever gained was in 2000 with a sugar content of 914 gr/lit. The Eszencia matures in glass containers, it ferments very slowly for years because of its extreme concentration. Its alcohol content does not exceed 5-6% even after several years of fermentation. The Eszencia is traditionally added back to aszú wines, most commonly when we make Aszú Eszencia. We always bottle a few hundred bottles from the greatest vintages for collectors.
