Intense aroma of dried apricots, with notes of honey and beeswax. Apricots return on the palate, but are accompanied by dried melons and mangoes as well. The wine has a very nice acid-sugar balance, providing a long finish to enjoy after the sip.
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. To prepare a delicious cheese board, serve it with blue cheese including Gorgonzola, Stilton and Roquefort, while it is also perfect with charcuterie.

Gróf Degenfeld Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
In 1994 the Count Degenfeld family successfully revived its wine estate in the heart of the Tokaj wine region, ensuring that the over 150-year-old tradition lives on with the latest generation. Winemaking was always closely intertwined with the family’s deep love and respect for nature, therefore since 2009 they cultivate their vineyards organically. The family only work with native grapes best suited to the unique micro-climate, create a range of single varietal wines with award-winning credentials. The bunches are hand-harvested and carefully vinified with minimal intervention. As a result, with every sip you take, you are tasting an authentic drop of the volcanic Tokaj terroir.
A light pastry infused with the irresistible summery fruit aromas of traditionally made apricot jam. Each bite of this delicious bake is a little bit of heaven.
The ripe and juicy berries with their natural sweetness are balanced beautifully by the acidity of the fragrant balsamic vinegar and the tartness of the yoghurt, creating a light dessert and a delightful treat that is refreshing and indulgent in equal measure.
