(£7.99 when you buy 6+ until 26.9, Majestic)
It’s always refreshing to come across a white with a bit of attitude. This Royal Tokaji Dry Tokaji was lurking with intent at the recent Majestic press tasting.
The Tokaj region is more famous for its historic sweet wine (like this beauty from Disznókő). But its dry whites are starting to make waves – and this smartly packaged dry Furmint is a case in point. It’s subtle but steely, pretty dry and serious but also well balanced, like a cross between Albariño and Chablis. It’s great value at this discounted price. (7/10, Peter, Sept 2016)
