Royal Tokaji masterclass at Kensington Wine Rooms

Kensington Wine Rooms

On Saturday 19 November, Kensington Wine Rooms will celebrate the release of the 2003 Royal Tokaji Essencia with a tasting event.

Royal Tokaji will also be offering a few bottles of its ultra-rare 2003 Essencia – a wine only made in four vintages in the company’s 21-year history. Essencia is the sweetest style of Tokaji, with a syrup-like texture, yet the alcohol level is typically just 2-4%.

Ben Howkins, managing director of Royal Tokaji, will lead the tasting, which will include the following Royal Tokaji wines:

2009 Dry Furmint
2009 Late Harvest
2007 Blue Label Aszu 5 Puttonyos
2003 Birsalmas Second Growth Aszu 5 Puttonyos
2003 Szt Tamas First Growth Aszu 6 Puttonyos
2003 Essencia

Tickets cost £65. To book, call 020 7727 8142.
