Béres Tokaji Cuvée 2005
|alcohol content:||11.5 %|
|acid contenct:||10.3 g/l|
|residual sugar:||115 g/l|
A „late harvest cuvée” made using the botrytised berries harvested in late November from Furmint and Hárslevelű varieties from the Lőcse vineyard.
A wine made with the traditional szamorodni technology. Fermented and aged for over a year in medium charred, Szerednye-type (220 l) casks. Because of its high content of solids and residual sugar it could even be regarded as a young Aszú. Its fragrance bears the caracteristics of overripe apricot and fig fruit which are then completed during ageing by the sophisticated vanilla aroma of the cask. It is a balanced wine of definite contour and outstanding elegance. It has oily, majestic, slow movement in the glass as a result of its full-bodied nature.
