€12.50 from Mitchell & Son, chq, Sandycove and Avoca, Kilmacanogue

Lush rich peach fruits, lightly honeyed with some toasted almonds. If that all sounds too soft and flabby, it isn’t; there is enough acidity to keep it all nicely on track.

Try it with white meats, chicken or pork, with creamy sauces. It went nicely with my chicken in a mushroom sauce.

It is not often you find a Tokaji for less than €15. Aldi have one for a mere €7.99 in their current Wine Festival, but this bottle from Mitchell & Son is far superior. Furmint in usually used to make the fabulous sweet wines of Tokaji, but in recent years, producers have started to offer very good dry whites as well. This is great value for money.
