Tokay / Topaque

Due to its similarity to the Hungarian term 'Tokaji', EU regulations saw the name Tokay phased out on Australian wine labels in 2016. Now referred to as Topaque, these Muscadelle-based fortifieds are slightly lighter than muscat, offering flavours of candied fruits, honey, toffee and 'cold tea'. Examples from Rutherglen are labelled under four descriptors marking a progression in richness, complexity and intensity of flavour: Rutherglen aged 3-5 years. Classic 6-10 years. Grand 11-19 years. Rare 20+ years. Try Tokays with fruit based desserts, soft cheeses, chilled as an aperitif or as an after dinner drink with coffee.
