Wine Enthusiast Review
This medium amber-colored wine comes from the famous Mezes Maly vineyard. It has amazing aromas of lanolin, honeysuckle and beeswax with just a whiff of iodine. In the mouth there are flavors of orange zest and white peach. It has good weight on the palate with balanced sweetness and acidity.
Wine Tasting Notes
Floral notes on the nose with scents of apricot and honey (Mezes Maly translates as "honey-place"). The palate shows typical elegance and depth with peach, pear and dried plum flavors leading to a long, delicate finish.
Serve slightly chilled (50 to 54 degrees) in a small port glass or a glass of similar size (there are approximately eight two-ounce servings per 500ml bottle). Tokaji Aszu wines are wonderful on their own as an apritif or as a digestif, with cigars and petits fours. These wines also pair well with a wide variety of foods, including foie gras, fruit tarts, chocolate desserts, and blue and soft cheeses.
