Opulent and weighty nose of honey, mango, orange peel and forest mushrooms. Having spent so long ageing in a barrel, it is highly recommended to give this Aszú some time to aerate, allowing the aromas to unfold. 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.
Food Pairing Recommendation
The ultimate dessert wine, perfect on its own or when partnered with cakes and patisserie, especially fruit cakes. 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.
