This light-lime coloured wine’s fragrance enchants you as soon as it is poured into the glass with the scent of barrel-spices and the same fresh and salty Tokaj air you inhale on the Királyhegy (King’s Mountain). It’s flavours take us further into the orchard with a slender body that stays on your pallet for a surprisingly long time. Caution! The bottle empties incredibly quickly.
Királyhegy is the oldest historic vineyard of Sárospatak. The south-eastern, cool slope is based on rhyolitic tuff although there are spots of andesite which is also very common in volcanic territories. The wines of the slope have a tense acidic character and beautifully developing, particularly rich minerality. Furmint and yellow muscat are grown in this territory on 20 to 30-year-old highly productive vine stocks.
