MEGYER TOKAJI ASZÚ 5 PUTTONYOS 2014
£35.00 – £105.00
The aszú berries used to make this gorgeous Tokaji are harvested from the end of October through to the end of November. The must is then fermented and aged in 220L Szerednyei oak barrels from the Zemplén hills, for 3 years, before bottling and released to market. This vintage was a hard year in Tokaj, but through the expert winemaking techniques and careful grape selection they achieved this outstanding sweet wine.On the nose: An intense bouqet of dried apricots, honey and meadow flowers. On the palate: The delicate aromas are fully integrated with the notes of the oxidative ageing method in the form of sweet caramel notes
Recommended combination with food: Perfect partner to lemon cake, dark chocolate citrus or orange desserts, dark chocolate caramel cake but it is also a noble companion to savoury biscuits, quiche Lorraine and roast meats with fruits and Peking duck.
