This is an interesting sweet wine from Hungary. Tokaji is the national wine of Hungary. The wine is made from grapes that have botrytis which increases the sugar concentration resulting in a candied fruit taste.

Golden colour in the glass.

Open with dessert and taste the sweet candied pear and apricot and honey flavours that swarm the palate. The sweet flavours linger for quite some time.

If you haven't tried a Tokaji from Hungary you definitly should and this is not a bad starter Tokaji for $20 for a 500ml bottle. They do come much sweeter than this (the Puttonyos on the bottle indicate sweetness) but overall this shows traditional Tokaji flavours of yeast, nectarines, and marmalade.
