Royal Tokaji Wine Co. was formed in 1990 with lots of international interest and partners.  They made the sweet Aszu versions at first.  This is  100% Furmint in a dry style (2.6% residual sugar).  The wine was aged in equal amounts in stainless steel and Hungarian oak.  12.5% ABV.  Light golden in color with slight silver hues, clear and bright.  The nose is nice with quince, slight diesel and a bit of apricot.  On the palate, this has nice minerality with some quince and a slight diesel on the palate which I found interesting.  A long finish.  This seems like it should be drunk in the next few years.  It drank fine on its own but will work better with food.  Lighter food such as seafood or chicken off the grill would work well.
