Kiralyudvar Tokaji Aszu 6 Puttonyos 2007
This sweet wine leads with notes of cedar and woodsy spice to the racy candied citrus, dried pineapple and apricot notes. The inherent richness is offset by a searing acidity that carries the tangy finish.
Tony Hwang’s purchase of Kiràlyudvar resulted from a visit to Budapest that year, when he drank a Tokaji Aszú recommended by a sommelier. The wine, with its profound identity and razor-sharp balance, made such an impression that Tony drove more than 200 kilometers the next day to Tokaj, where he discovered Kiràlyudvar (pronounced Kee-RYE-oohd-var).
