2016 was our best vintage in the decade regarding Aszú wines. Small rains occurred mid-September and it ignited the botrytis development and prepared the vineyards for the long and warm autumn. Grapes were able to reach full phenolic ripens before noble rotting became dominant in the vineyards.
The wine has a fantastic intensity and complexity of flavours such as dried apricot, mango, marmalade, ginger, nutmeg and developed notes of butterscotch, caramel, forest floor and mushroom. All these sweet notes are supported with an extraordinary acidity that makes this wine so unique in the world of sweet wines.
This wine is drinking well along with foie gras, blue cheese, and last but not least can give an unparalleled experience with Cuban cigars.
