A friendly and approachable off-dry vintage (11.5g/l residual sugar) made from the indigenous Muscat Lunel grape, this is a beautiful example of this variety and a great introduction to aromatic white wine from Tokaj. Expressive and exciting on the nose with flavours of elder, peach, white blossoms and green grape are all absolutely singing. The palate is refined with a defined core and citrus on the mid-palate. A delightful acidity and mineral nuances tie the wine together. Sunshine in a bottle.
A wonderful pairing would be with spiced Asian dishes. Prawn and Nam Jim dipping sauce, with its spice, would work very well. Lighter Indian dishes would pair with the floral aspects of the wine, or serve with grilled poultry or fresh cheeses.
