This is a light and fruity dessert wine – but not too sweet – with the flavours of dried tropical fruit, peach, spices and marmalade. This works well with fruity desserts – but is even better with a cheese course. It is especially wonderful with any type of blue cheese.

It's a must for sweet wine lovers. This Tokaj is made with grapes from 30-year old vines it is a classic: rich and sweet yet balanced with a refreshing acidity.

On Makár mountain in Pécs, Hungary, in between the wine growing regions of Szekszérd and Villány, the founders of Tokaj Classic had been cultivating a small vineyard for generations. Due to the difficult political and economic situation after WWII, production of high quality Hungarian wine virtually ceased for a period of 30-40 years. The stagnation of the wine-making industry also took its toll on the winery. The scale was reduced, and wine was only produced for private consumption as well as for family friends. The musicians, who were widely traveled and had tasted a variety of wines from different countries, came to the unanimous conclusion that this old winery was a diamond in the rough, just waiting to be polished, and decided to take its future into their hands. With great care, they modernized and refurbished the entire operation. Oak barrels were replaced, new vineyards in the best locations were purchased. For the musicians wine making become a passion. Treating and handling grapes as well as wine is comparable to teaching music students. Talent is recognized and promoted, Redundant growth is contained and brought to shape, whereas character is brought to light and emphasized. Attention is paid to the slightest detail and new interpretation is always sought. As in a duett, the partnership of the grape varietals is finely harmonised. Each vintage is its own composition, maintaining its individual character. As for Tokaji its unmistakable composition is handled with traditional methodology.

Intense and lightly sweet, with dried orange, pineapple, blonde tobacco and a hint of white chocolate on the finish. They produce some of the most stunningly brilliant sweet wines we have tasted and are highly recommended.
