This Tokaji strikes the perfect balance of lush, creamy opulence and elegant, lively acidity. Honey, spice and lemon on the nose and in the mouth unfold triumphantly, offering a fresh but full character. On the palate, the wine is viscous and full, but with a strain of liveliness that gives it lift. Delicious and decadent.
Bursting with flower and tropical fruit aromas, the nose on this Tokaj is intoxicating. Luxurious and creamy on the palate, it offers penetrating honey and stone fruit flavors, intensified by prickles of sea salt, mineral and tea leaf astringency.
A brilliant deep-gold color in the glass, this alluring Tokaji draws you in with heady aromas of dried pear, honeyed apricot and candied orange peel, then delivers in a big way with full-bodied roundness and flavors of dried apricot, pear compote and vanilla custard. Complex and extremely elegant, it has great balance of sweetness and acidity.
Essencia is the rare free-run juice from botrytized Tokaji grapes, and if you’ve ever wondered what all the fuss is about, this bottle is as reasonably priced as it gets. It boasts an unctuously creamy palate that’s full of delicious honey, tropical fruit and vanilla-caramel notes. It’s flecked with a white flower tone, with striking acidity that lingers on the finish.
Though this dessert wine is already excellent, it’s quite exciting to imagine how good it will be as its delicate flavors mingle over time. Made by the Szepsy family, whose roots go centuries (perhaps 1,000 years) deep in Hungary, the wine starts with a dense, slightly musky but floral nose. On the tongue, apricot, honey and spice mingle in a rich, opulent union…
Pretty lavender and violet notes shaded with wax and lanolin scent this delicious, honey-coated wine. Decadently rich with a sunny, bright acidity and elegant tones of tangerine, black tea and heather, it’s lip-smackingly good through its long, smooth finish.
Orange peel, honey and spice notes linger over a bouquet of hyacinth and freesias. So beautifully structured, it’s as if each sip unleashes a wave of sweet amber honey that undulates on the palate amidst flashes of golden marmalade and a vibrant citrus acidity.
Hints of sweet pastry and rising bread entice on this refreshing, dry, yet honeyed sparkling wine made from Tokaj grape varieties. It’s brisk on the palate, with a clean cut, but it has all of the waxy, floral qualities of a sweet Tokaj wine. Fantastic now, but it could be even more glorious with five more years in the cellar.
