27/11/2017 – Dizsnoko Tokaji & Seifried Sweet Agnes

(2017) An exceptionally fine Tokaji this, last tasted by me at the winery back in 2011, and now absolutely singing with clear notes of honey, glycerine, tea and bergamot, deep notes of coffee and high notes of white flowers. In the mouth luscious and sweet, the tang of Seville orange marmalade, but a shimmering, silky acidity and energy gives wonderful balance as it flows across the tongue. An absolute treat now, but will age for decades. Price is for 50cl. For more information and food matching ideas, please watch the video.
(2017) A wine I always enjoy, and this 2016 vintage is a good one, 175g/l of residual sugar putting it fully in the dessert wine category. Made from late-harvested grapes and made in steel tanks, its a pristine style, though laden with honey, glycerine and nectarine fruit. On the palate it has richness of texture without being 'sticky', and real intensity: there's keen acidity at the core to ensure that, put the lush tropical and very ripe pear fruit flows towards the finish impressively. Price for a half bottle. For more information, please watch the video.
