Deluxe hamper of an award-winning dry Tokaji Furmint with three gourmet delicacies. The perfect gift to wine lovers and food connoisseurs or a great starting point for creating a dinner party to remember.
The hamper contains:
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.
Balsamic Tokaji Aszu Vinegar 200ml: Balsamic vinegar aged on Tokaji Aszu berries, also used to make the world famous Aszu sweet wine, known as the 'wine of the kings and the king of the wines'. Biologically fermented, a natural process which preserves the original character of the wine, and then aged in oak barrels used for maturing Aszu wine, allowing for a complete harmony of flavours and aromas to develop. The result is a crisp and elegant balsamic vinegar with a light texture and delicate acidity, making this an essential gourmet ingredient.
Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil from Tokaj 250ml: Grapeseed oil from the finest seeds sourced directly from wineries based in the world famous Tokaj wine region of Hungary. Made by a unique mechanical cold-press technology which ensures that the seeds' valuable nutrients and natural goodness are fully retained. The result is a nutritious and flavoursome oil with a dark green hue and a fragrant aroma of freshly pressed grape juice.
Tokaji Wine Jelly with Truffle 50g: Unique wine jelly created by infusing the renowned Tokaji Aszu sweet wine with shavings of fragrant black summer truffles. The result is a gourmet delicacy of unparalleled flavour, combining the delightful citrussy fruitiness of the wine with the deeply aromatic muskiness of the truffles. The wine jelly is the perfect addition to cheese platters and goes especially well with blue cheese and Camembert. It pairs very well with goose liver and foie gras, bringing out flavours that would otherwise remain dormant, or serve alongside charcuterie boards as a gastronomic difference maker.
Balsamic Tokaji Aszu Vinegar 200ml: Furmint wine vinegar, concentrated grape must and furmint wine vinegar aged on Tokaji Aszu berries (furmint wine vinegar, 30% Aszu berries)
Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil from Tokaj 250ml: 100% Cold Pressed Grapeseed Oil
Tokaji Wine Jelly with Truffle 50g: Tokaji wine reduction, honey, 5% black truffle (Tuber aestivum) and natural flavouring
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.
Here is our favourite vinaigrette recipe, made using some of the finest products that Hungary has to offer! We especially love to make this on busy evenings when we are not in the mood to make a complicated side, as the rich flavours of the vinaigrette turns even the simplest of salads into a gastronomic delight.
An indulgent side dish or a gourmet dessert, these delicious baked apples are given a divine touch by the addition of a richly aromatic Tokaji wine jelly infused with fragrant black truffles. The delicate sweetness of the wine jelly perfectly complements the natural tartness of the apple and the mineral acidity of the sparkling wine, while the earthy truffle aromas turn this into a truly irresistible treat.
It makes a great accompaniment to roast meat, especially pork and beef, while served with some fresh whipped cream on the side, it is your one-way ticket to gastronomic bliss.
