This complex Tokaj 6 Puttonyos Aszú is rich and fruity, from the outstanding vintage of 2007. The grapes were grown at the 30-year-old Lőcse-vineyard of Tokaj. The nose is dominated by dried fruit, mainly apricot and fig, while the palate is characterised by harmonic acidicity supported by oak aging. Long and elegant finish. Incredibly elegant and harmonic wine with great aging potential.

Food pairing:

Wonderful with foie gras, aged cheeses and in itself with an expensive cigar. Recommended serving temperature: 12-14 °C
