More than a simple dessert wine. Enjoyable on its own of course, but with a surprising range of dishes too. Great paired with white meat with creamy sauces, venison with almond sauce, poultry with orange/cranberry sauces. Also excellent with fish, like smoked salmon marinated in red pepper, with seafood and with refined spicy and fusion dishes. A superb accompaniment to mature salty hard or blue cheeses – like Roquefort.
Bright, deeper golden colour. Apricot, spices, vanilla and fine botrytis nose. Soft attack, then very fresh, long acidity, perfectly balanced, classic Tokaj taste. Simply sublime.

Individual, berry by berry aszú grape selection was carried out several times in the vineyard. Storage of aszú berries in stainless steel containers until vinification in early November. The perfect quality aszú grapes (unpressed) were macerated in fermenting must for 48-60 hours, then pressed. After fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was aged in barrel for two and a half years, partly in new oak. Bottled in January 2006.
Store in a cool dry place.
