Royal Tokaji Red Label #5 Aszu 2003

External Review by Astor Wines & Spirits:

Nearly every discussion of the prestigious wines of Hungary includes Tokaji, the country's famed dessert wine. This is a stunningly well priced bottle full of apricots and peaches on the palate. It's sweet, but it has bright acidity to balance out its richness. Give it a light chill and enjoy it with Stilton, nuts, and salty fare - or just be a purist and enjoy it for everything it is on its own.
