50cl * 13.0% ABV * Tokaj, Hungary
Tokaji is widely regarded as 'the wine of kings and the king of wines' Oremus follow the 400 year old Hungarian traditional production technique for their Tokaji Aszu. The puttonyos number refers to the sweetness of the wine, and 5 puttonyos is considered the mid-level of sweetness for this classic dessert wine. Their 2006 vintage is complex, with multiple layers of exotic mandarin and marmalade, and enticing underlying notes of acacia honey and beeswax. The finish is lingering and has a balancing twang of acidity. Match with caramelised sweet dishes like tarte tatin or equally with savoury pairings such as Stilton or rich pates.
