Details

Tokaj Classic Late Harvest 500ml, beautiful botrytis dessert wine, a match for many a Sauternes....With 117 g/l residual sugar and 6.1 g/l acidity, made from 65% Furmint, 30% Lindenleaf and 5% Muscat, this delightful little dessert wine offers luscious tangerine and orange marmalade characters with notes of lemon rind, quinze, caramel and more. The production is classic with a long slow fermentation in new oak barrels. Superb wine which combines sugar with great freshness and acidity. It is extremely drinkable and more than a match for a cheaper Sauternes than can be sickly and cloying. Try this with light fruity desserts like fresh fruit flan and creme anglaise or with a younger, less stinky blue cheese.


The winery is situated in the ancient town of Mád and there are eight hectares under vine in the “Grand Cru” Kiraly and Betsek areas, planted to Furmint, Harslevelu (Lindenleaf) and Muscat. It is owned by cellist Andras Bruhacs and two German fellow classical musicians. The vines average age is around 30 years old, producing extremely low yields. Imre Galambosi, as well as being the winemaker, was also mayor for a span of eight years. Having renovated the winery, they have resumed the production of world-class wines, a practice which had all but faded into obscurity in the area. This winery are now producing some of the world's best sweet wines in this historic region.
