“...this dark, ruddy Tokaji is monolithic, as rich, creamy and dense as a giant caramel. With time, notes of warm spice and cherries emerge. Drink it by the teaspoon, or tuck it away in the cellar for another 20 years.”

“...stands out for its intense earthiness, a characteristic that the winery attributes to the low altitude of this vineyard and its black, volcanic soil...flavors veer toward the savory, more papaya than pineapple, salted caramel over brown sugar.”

“This clear, pale yellow wine’s charming aromas of toast, apple, hazelnut and caramel pointed the way to refreshing flavors of vanilla, pear apple and apricot. Light-bodied and briskly acidic, it ended with a lengthy, creamy finish. Food Friendliness: A fresh herb-crusted salmon would be an excellent partner for this sparkler.”

Forget The Cashmere: Give Soft Tannins Instead

“Wines for meal’s end are often a sweet afterthought. That makes them a terrific gift. …Sweet Tokaji from Hungary, arguably the world’s greatest sweet wine, is perennially underappreciated.”

The Pour: A New York Times Blog

“...one of the best rosé sparkling wines I’ve had recently...deliciously dry and elegant, and though it is made mostly of chardonnay, the color, berry flavor and structure of the pinot noir shines through as well.…”

The Napa Valley Register

“Pioneer of artisan American sparkling wines, Schramsberg has added a spectacular rosé to its top of the line... a polished sparkler with intense strawberry notes, a long, cinnamon-accented finish and a citrus wash.”

A surprising bargain from Hungary

“The furmint grape is one of the main ingredients in the country’s renowned and expensive sweet Tokaji Aszu, but bottled on its own, it makes a crisp, appetizing wine with a scent of ripe apples and lemony minerality. …it’s a bargain…”

“...lots of yeasty richness neatly fit to its mildly berry-like fruit. Its pinpointy bubbles make for a fine and rounded feel in the mouth, and its lengthy, layered finish is firmed by just the right measure of crisp acidity....”

“… this wine clearly shows plenty of development in its light golden color and its expansive, yeasty, toasty aromas nicely backed up by still-vital lemony fruit. It carries an attractive, creamy mousse and, if somewhat full in feel, the wine is very well-balanced. It is in no danger of drying out despite its somewhat advanced style and will serve well with lighter foods.”

“Starts off citrusy, but those notes are rounded out by ripe apple and melon flavors. This off-dry, round-in-the-mouth Pinot Gris then picks up subtle spice and pepper notes on the finish.”
