Top dry Tokaji: Péter Pince Arcus Cuvée 2018

The top dry white from Péter Pince. It’s also one of the finest in Tokaj, if you ask me.

A blend of Furmint, Hárslevelű and Kabar, alcohol is 13,5%, 620 bottles made. It offers all the hallmarks of the producer: precision, incredible freshness and purity. The Kabar really comes through, adding Viognier-like perfume and fullness to wine. Smooth and round on the palate, full-bodied yet light on it’s feet. Outstanding depth of flavor, good length. It’s amazing how crisp and vibrant this is, even though acidity is not high. A polished, layered wine still in its infancy.
