Special Features: The Esszencia is one of the most exclusive wines in the world. Chateau Pajzos is the only winery (from Hungary) that scored 100 points with Robert Parker with its Esszencia 1993 - a true representation of its quality! Only produced when there is an exceptional vintage, the estate has only produced 4 of such - in 1993, 1999 (100 Neal Martin points), 2000 and its latest vintage - 2010.
Esszencia is literally the pure liquid of the Aszu berries that run off naturally from the vats in which they are collected during harvest. The sugar concentration is enormous (residual sugar over 450g/l) and the alcohol level remains low (3.3%). Unlike any other wine, the Esszencia maintains its quality and drinkability for at least 200 years!
