Crisp, citrusy and minerally, like Chablis, yet with underlying spice, this is a dazzling white. It’s from one of Europe’s most historic vineyards, and a cellar that’s been numbered among the Top 100 Wineries in the World six times. Rare indeed.
Tokaji is Hungary’s most noble wine, with 400 years of history and royal patronage. Most are sweet, some intensely so, yet this version is bone dry and ranks alongside Chablis as one of the defining styles of Europe. It’s made from the rare Furmint grape, which has the aromatic intensity of Viognier and the stony freshness of Chenin. And it comes from the Royal Tokaji Company, brainchild of the world’s favourite wine writer, Hugh Johnson. “I had to wait for the Iron Curtain to come down before I could start up my dream machine,” said Hugh. But it was certainly worth the wait, as you’ll taste with this superb release. Fermented and aged in new oak, it marries crisp fruit with spicy vanilla. A lovely choice with rich creamy chicken dishes.
"Lovely! Flavoursome and rich, whilst keeping its dryness. 5-Stars"
