Wines created in the Tokaj Wine Region have a unique character, a distinct minerality. They have a wonderfully taut acid structure and offer wines perfect for a light or a heavier meal or simply to enjoy during a pleasant lunch.
After the in-store success of the Furmint wines produced by the enterprising Pajzos estate of Tokaj, Hungary, we felt compelled to add their varietal Hárslevelu to our portfolio after being enamoured by it in staff tastings earlier in the year.
Hárslevelu, which translates to 'lime leaf' in the native tongue, is a grape that - like Furmint - is used to produce the famous and timeless dessert wines of the historic Tokaj region. Here, in its dry form, the grape showcases its aromatic, blossomy character on top of a peachy palate that is tempered by the trademark, zingy acidity that this grape and region has become known for. A superb wine that will pair beautifully with an array of dishes ranging from salads to cheeses (especially blue!) and white meats.
