This Tokaji Dry Szamorodni is an intriguing and exciting wine made in a style that was once in favour throughout the region. However, it is now on the brink of dying out.
Once opened, the aromas are reminiscent of a fino or Barbadillo Sherry, as the oxidative nutty flavours are a delightful accent to a rich honey note. The botrytised berries offer richness, a touch of dried apricot and a light muscat florality. One wouldn't place this as a 2003 vintage as the wine is still bursting with freshness and showing plenty of ageing capability.
A great pairing would be with Spanish garlic prawns, cured mangalitza ham or tomato insalata.
