BALASSA Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos 'Villő' 2017

£89.00

An award-winning 6 Puttonyos Tokaji Aszú from the exceptional 2017 vintage. Limited to only 1512 bottles made, this is a unique sweet wine for connoisseurs.

An intense nose of marmalade, peach compote, saffron and walnut. The silky-smooth palate is deep and concentrated even for a Tokaji Aszú, with rich apricot notes and ripe citrus fruit flavours accompanied by a layered botrytis character. Lusciously sweet with 247g of residual sugar, its mouth-watering acidic backbone ensures the perfect balance for a finely poised volcanic wine that is truly a once-in-a-generation experience.


Food Pairing

A wine to truly savour, you can serve it on its own after a meal even in place of a dessert. It will also make a remarkable pairing for air-dried ham and cakes. It goes very well with blue cheese including Stilton and Roquefort and soft cheese.

Meet the Winemaker

Balassa Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)

The boutique Balassa winery was established in 2005 by Istvan Balassa in the historic Tokaj wine region. Right from the beginning, Istvan, a perfectionist, was determined to produce only the highest-quality wines possible by maximising the potential of each vintage. It all starts in his vineyards with growing grapes of outstanding quality by applying a rigorous scientific approach to cultivation. He then creates each wine using artisanal wine-making methods, allowing the unique characteristics of the grape, the vineyard and the terroir to shine through in every drop.
