|Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Hungary's signature desert wine, Tokaji (the J is silent) Aszu is made from Botrytis which is known as Noble Rot. This inert fungus draws the water out of the Furmint grapes, leaving behind just the concentrated aromas/flavours, colour, acid, and of course, Sugar!
4 Puttonyos indicates the number of buckets, or puttonyos of the affected grapes that are added to the base wine.
This golden wine has some green hues, and aromas of honey, burnt biscuit, orange marmalade, and canned peach.
Medium sweet on the palate, and this expression is nicely balanced by the structure of the wine.
Pair with salty cheeses, foie gras, or white chocolate. Or enjoy as a night cap with friends!
