It is clearly cut from a different cloth to the 2007, disproving the idea that wines of such extraordinary sweetness conform to type. With freshly cut tangerines, apricot and orange zest, there is a brightness here and a real sense of energy. The palate is founded upon energy and tension, a silver thread of acidity that cuts through the layer upon layer of orange zest, Japanese yuzu, tangerine and honey.
This is the ultimate gift for the wine-lover who has everything!

Essencia is the world's rarest and most concentrated essence of grapes. It has so little alcohol 1.65% that the legal definition of wine only applies due to a special exception. Perfect humid climatic conditions are needed to encourage and form noble rot, depriving the grapes of 90% of their juice and shrivelling them into rich raisins. Each berry is harvested individually. Back at the winery they are heaped together in collecting bins, drop by drop the juice seeps from these raisined grapes, there is not enough to fill a barrel so this rare liquid is transferred into glass demijohns and taken down into Royal Tokaji's deep, dark, historic cellars. In the cool cellar conditions a gentle change gradually occurs, over seven years, transforming the sugar, acids and flavours of the grapes into a unique, perfumed, unctuous syrup so rich that it can only be sipped.
