BALASSA Tokaji Furmint 2018 

Combining the finest hand-picked grapes from four volcanic vineyards, this medium-bodied dry Furmint is a crisp wine reflecting the complexity of the Tokaj terroir. Refreshing, with a dynamic yet refined acidity and just a touch of oak. Fruity, intense nose shows some butterscotch and herbal notes of delicate acacia and camomile. Friendly, attractive palate with some nuttiness and salty minerality. Long finish of sweet spices and ripe fruits. A balanced, easy-going but seriously well-made wine.


Food Pairing

A great accompaniment to poultry, seafood and risottos or try with your Asian noodle bowl. Goes well with washed-rind cheeses such as Appenzeller, Linburger or Taleggio, as well as with some charcuterie.

TOKAJ NOBILIS Organic Tokaji Sparkling Wine 2017

Traditional method sparkling wine from Tokaj, made, from Furmint, the signature grape of the region. Fresh, clean, youthful nose of pears and a hint of yeast. The palate is undeniably Tokaj - fruitier and more mineral-rich than a classic Champagne. Intense, crisp acidity balanced out by creamy, buttery notes from lees ageing. Some residual sugar gives a fuller mouthfeel, but the finish is marked again by mineral notes and citrusy acidity. A crisp and refreshing wine.

Perfect to enjoy on its own, or serve with a smoked fish, oysters, or a creamy mushroom dish. Also great with sponge cakes and other light desserts

TOKAJICUM Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2017

Opulent and weighty nose of honey, mango, orange peel and forest mushrooms.  A palate rich in acacia blossoms, marmalade and passion fruit aromas. This is a well-balanced and concentrated sweet white wine, with a creamy texture and a long finish.


Food Pairing

The ultimate dessert wine, perfect on its own or when partnered with cakes and patisserie, especially fruit cakes and pies. It is also our recommended drink of choice to go with goose liver.
