The season owes its success to a wet winter followed by a warm, dry summer. Then a cold snap in September helped preserve acidity in the fruit: Although the residual sugar clocks in at 182.8 grams per liter, and acidity sends the wine’s rich, sweet flavors soaring into a heady cloud of flavor, buzzing with vivacity. It tastes of lemon blossoms and marmalade, apricot jam and wildflower honey, energizing in its intensity and verve.

The well-balanced palate is very pure in the mouth, offering a viscous entry and a fine bead of acidity. It has a more cohesion than the Nyulászó, and the finish is elegant and poised. I cannot explain why but there is something almost South African on the finish, perhaps a (very) distant echo of a Mullineux straw wine! Tasted at the Royal Tokaji Company tasting in London. -- Neal Martin

At this stage Betsek is more open on the nose, with reticent apple and apricot aromas. The attack is fresh, silky and sweet, but the fruit is concentrated, precise, and poised. The finish is lively and quite long.
