Essencia is the world’s most concentrated essence of its ripest grapes. Royal Tokaji has offered a few bottles of essencia only six times in its twenty-six-year history.
Essencia is the fermented liquid gold that very slowly oozes from bins of individually hand-picked grapes raisined by botrytis. One skilled picker may harvest 10kgs of these grapes in one day. The juice slowly accumulates in the bottom of the vat by the gentle pressure of the grapes’ own weight and pours like rich honey. It is essentially the essence of the grape, and yeast has a near hopeless task. From this rare liquid, the cellar master will select the very best to be bottled.
