Region

The Tokaji wine region is in the north east of Hungary, towards the borders of Slovakia and Ukraine. The region is centred around the confluence of the Tisza and Bodrog rivers, with the vineyards planted on the south and southwest slopes above. The rising mists from the rivers in autumn encourage the onset of `noble rot` in the grapes, producing one of the great and most distinct sweet wines of the world.

Producer

Chateau Pajzos is one of the great producers in Tokaj, Hungary. The estate was classified as a `First Growth` in 1772 and its sweet wines have been enjoyed by Monarchs and Emperors for centuries, Louis XV of France famously called Tokaji `Wine of Kings, King of Wines`. In 1991, the Pajzos estate was bought by Jean-Louis Laborde who also owns the famous Chateau Clinet in Pomerol, Bordeaux.
Tasting Notes
This delicious dry white wine is made from Furmint, one of the main grape varieties that makes the famous sweet wine Tokaji. Highly aromatic with notes of ripe peaches and pears on the nose. The palate has rich stone fruit and tropical fruit flavours of peaches and lychee. A grapefruit acidity gives freshness to the wine which finishes long and fruity.
Food
Enjoy by the glass as an aperitif or with seafood, sushi or chicken dishes.
