Producer
Christian Sauska is a Hungarian entrepreneur who, having forged a successful career in the USA, decided in 1999 to establish a winery in his homeland. In 2000 he converted a historic building in Tokaj, formerly known as the Citizens’ Casino, into a production facility and tasting room. This was joined in 2006 by a new winery the other side of Hungary, in Villány. With red varieties grown in the latter region and white grapes in the former, Sauska is able to produce exemplary wines in numerous different styles.

Vineyard
The vines are grown on volcanic and loess soils at 180-200 metres elevation, with a south-east to south-south-west exposure, and average thirty-five years old. The botrytis-affected grapes were individually hand- picked between November 20th and December 20th.

Winery
The botrytised berries were crushed and added to the base wine, then fermented in barrel over eight months. The wine was then aged for thirty- six months in new oak, with fifty-five percent Hungarian, thirty percent French and fifteen percent American wood.

Taste
Gorgeously rich yet precisely balanced, this classic Tokaji presents flavours of dried peach, apricot and toffee, all cut with a zesty citrus note. There is intensity and power here, but a lightness of touch that makes it decidedly moreish.

Awards
Gold Medal – Best in Class, International Wine & Spirit Competition 2007

Press
“Rich and syrupy, with hints of green tea and tobacco accenting apricot, date and dried mango notes that remain broad, spicy and mouthcoating through the long finish.” – 94 points, Wine Spectator, April 2013
