TOKAJICUM Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2018

Tokaji Aszú is known as the "king of wines, wine of kings", and this 5 Puttonyos Aszú presents an approachable side to this sweet wine speciality.

You are drawn in by an opulent and intense aroma of honeyed sweetness, mango, orange peel and fragrant forest mushrooms. The palate is rich in acacia blossoms, marmalade and tropical notes of passion fruit. This concentrated sweet wine is perfectly balanced by its natural acidity, creating a highly-drinkable vintage with a creamy texture and a lingering mineral finish.


Food Pairing

Tokaji Aszú is the ultimate dessert wine, perfect on its own or when partnered with cakes and patisserie, especially fruit cakes and pies, while it is also our recommended drink of choice to go with goose liver. Prepare a delicious cheese board and serve it with cramy soft cheese like Camembert, or try it alongside some moreish charcuterie.
