We were very proud to have a master of wine present the historic and noble wines of Royal Tokaji. Chris Donaldson MW has made it his mission in wine life to educate the world about these great wines of Hungary.
The Oddity Dry Tokaji 2017/18Regular price £14.95
Being made from grape varieties you may never have heard of - Hárslevelű and Yellow Muscat - this wine is definately an oddity, but a great find. Dry, very fresh and clean with hints of citrus fruits and fennel. Dry, with a long flowery finish.
Grapes: Hárslevelű and Yellow Muscat
Royal Tokaji Blue Label 5 Puttonyos 2013 25clRegular price £17.95
Complex and rich with quince jelly, dried apricot and marmalade aromas and flavours.
Grapes: Furmint, Hàrslevelü and Muskotály
Royal Tokaji Mézes Mály Dry Furmint 2018Regular price £24.95
Made with fruit from the legendary first growth vineyard Mezes Maly, this is Hungary's equivalent to a Grosses Gewachs Riesling trocken or a Grand Cru White Burgundy; but without the price tag!
Mézes Mály's characteristics are based around its translation as 'honey pot'. Its incredibly long and exquisitely balanced aromas and flavours combine the very essence of aszu wines.
Apricot and honey on the nose, beautiful fruit driven depth of palate which is bone dry, followed by a gorgeous minerally finish. If you love white Burgundy - this one's for you.
Grapes: Furmint, Hárslevelû, Muscat
