And now for something completely different (again), this is the dry version of Hungarys normally sweet Furmint that goes to make the illustrious Tokaij dessert wine, and this is produced by Vega Sicilia so expect a definitive extra £6 worth of goodness. Like its Patricius neighbour, on the nose it has all the sweet characters of stewed pears, baked apples and apricots, honey, quince and cinder toffee while the palate has a definitive richness and full mouthfeel, yet dry with a lively acidity and delicious softly spiced pear and apricot flavours. Again, it's brilliant with rich fatty patés or game, but this little beauty is also a winner with dark bitter chocolate.
