Sauska, Brut, Tokaj, Hungary NV
(at London, 21 Feb 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2025
NV sparkling is a rarity in Tokaj. Crafted by Champagne maestro Régis Camus based on the 2019 vintage, Sauska's NV Sparkling Brut is a blend of the local duo, Furmint and Hárslevelu, plus a dash of Chardonnay. Savoury toast opens up to red apple and honey-roasted nuts on the nose, thanks to at least 18 months of lees ageing. A buttered palate of brioche and wheat biscuit seasoned with honey and apple tart, melting in the creamy mousse. The notable residual sugar (8g/l) offsets the mineral acidity at 6.5g/l. Pleasing honeydew melon on the finish.
