  1. Dry by Tokaj 2013 Hungarian White Wine

    Dry by Tokaj 2013

    £12.50

    £12.50

    There are two 'wowzer' elements to this white. Firstly, it's Hungarian, which is as rare as hen's teeth on UK wine shelves. Secondly, it's a dry version of the world-renowned amber nectar that is Tokaj dessert wine.

    The grape in question - Furmint - is usually left to go mouldy and 'botritise', which concentrates the sugars. But what happens if you don't let the wine go mouldy and you make a dry wine in the usual fashion?

    Well, Dry Furmint is a new phenomenon and we are happy to say that Dry by Tokaj is leading the way with this crisp, mineral, quince and orange blossom firecracker.
  2. Tokaji Aszu Patricius 6 Puttonyos 2006 Hungarian White Wine

    Tokaji Aszu Patricius 6 Puttonyos 2006

    £29.00

    £29.00

    Tokaji Aszú falls under a ranking system labelled as Puttonyos, the higher the Puttonyos the higher the percentage of botrytized grapes used; making the wine richer and sweeter. This wine is the top dog, 6 Puttonyos. In fact, the only more premium category of Tokaji is called 'Eszencia,' it's so sweet that typically, it's served with a spoon and is pretty much reserved for the Hungarian Royal Family, when they're on their deathbed, believing the wine will revive them. You don't have to serve this wine with a spoon and we doubt it will prevent death but with its beautiful full-body, succulent flavours of apricot, marmalade, honey, white blossom and enlivening acidity, you might forget about mortality altogether.
