I consider Hungarian Tokaj wines to be the best sweet wines in the world. Their unbridled acidity and intensity of aromas create a taste that makes the mouth look good every time. No other sweet wine can really create a similar fireworks display.
The golden yellow drink smells moderately. In the mouth, the wine is heavy sweet, but the fair acids bite through the sugar at the end of the taste and freshen the taste nicely. The wine tastes like apricot, pineapple, honey and lacquer. The taste is long and elegant. Acids and only moderate alcohol bring lightness.
The best food to offer with Tokaj is Finnish fresh candied lacquers. The aromas of the lacquer found in the combination of both are accelerated into a highly intense taste that feels alive in the mouth for almost infinitely long time. The second best combination with Tokaj is blue cheese. It creates a new exciting taste, with both wine and cheese flavors left behind. The combination tastes like a surprising caramel-toned aroma, which is successfully refracted by the rich acids of the wine.
