TOKAJICUM Tokaji Furmint “Vizsla” 2018
Dry Furmint showcasing the lighter side of this quintessential Tokaj variety. A medium-bodied and approachable wine, partially tank-fermented to retain the grapes' delightful fruitiness, followed by a period of barrel ageing for added depth and character. Restrained nose of peaches, pears, honey and a touch of quince. Smooth, creamy palate dominated by peach and pear, elegantly complemented by honeyed notes and buttery, toasty flavours from barrel ageing. A fine wine with good acidity and fine balance.
Serve with roast, poultry, fish, sushi and pasta. If you are preparing a cheese board, pair it with medium hard cheese including Edam, Emmental, Gruyere and Gouda, or try with some charcuterie.

TOKAJICUM Tokaji Szamorodni 2018
A complex and intense wine with a deepening gold colour, a rich flavour of honey, orange peel, mango and sweet spices, and a hint of botrytis. The sweetness is undercut by fresh acidity. The little brother of the world famous Tokaji Aszú, this luscious yet easy-drinking Tokaji Szamorodni is an everyday luxury.
This sweet white wine pairs very with goose liver and blue cheese, or try it with an apricot or cherry pie, as the natural tartness of the fruit is perfectly complemented by the wine. For the adventurous, we recommend serving with spicy Asian dishes.

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.
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.

Tokajicum Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
The Tokajicum Winery is situated in the historical wine region of Tokaj, renowned for its white wines, but especially its unique Late Harvest and Aszu dessert wines. The winery cultivates grapes on 20 hectares of prime location land, with vines that are 40 years or older, producing wines of real character with a high mineral content.
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.
