First to be released in the UK and Europe, then Asia and the US this autumn, just 2,057 375ml bottles will be available either singly in a presentation case or in a case of six.

One of the rarest of all Tokajis, produced only in the very best years from what are effectively raisins so rich in sugar the "wine" rarely exceeds 2% abv, the 2007 Essencia is only the fifth vintage from Royal Tokaji since 1990, the other four intervening vintages being 1993, 1999, 2000 and 2003.

Also released by the company is the latest vintage of its "Blue Label" five puttonyos aszu from 2009. Unlike in other parts of Europe that year where everything went right, in Hungary "there was a lot of everything but none at the right time." Consequently, many of the best wines from the 2009 vintage are "very promising" with "lovely elegance and fresh fruitiness," Royal Tokaji said.
