Topaque is the name for the variety formerly known as Tokay in Australia that was named after the wines of the north-eastern corner of Hungary, a region known as Tokaj-Hegyalja. The wines in this area are intensely flavoured, sweet wines made from Furmint, a variety not planted in Australia.
In early Australian winemaking, attempts were made to replicate the sweeter styles of Furmint using the variety, Muscadelle. Following many years of ageing in cask, a unique Australian style emerged and was referred to as Liqueur Tokay.
Amber and golden colour with the merest hint of a green hue, the wine offers aromas of malt, exotic spices and nut-brown butter. The palate is decadently luscious with a truly lingering flavour of fruit cake and the finish shows a waft of smokiness.
