DISZNOKO TOKAJI ASZU 5 PUTTONYOS 2008

Acclaimed as one of the most favourable sites for Aszú in Tokaj, the Disznókő estate is a single tract of land, planted with noble grape varieties of the Tokaj Wine Region, mainly Furmint.

Golden to deep amber depending on its age. When young, the nose bursts with intensity: fresh fruits (very often apricot) and citrus aromas. Over 10 years old, the wine gains even greater aromatic complexity filled with dried fruits, spicy and honey notes. A display of the vintage character in flavours. A beautiful balance between vivacious acidity and sweetness. The Disznóko Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos tastes fresh, long and is always superbly complex and focused. Amazing length, often with a spicy finish. Spirited!

Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2008 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 70% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 10% Hárslevelu, the maceration mostly with finished wine. This has an exceptional bouquet: Satsuma and mandarin, quince and marmalade, wonderful mineralite and tension. The palate is very well balanced with mandarin, lime, orange rind and a touch of quince. This is edgy, a more unpredictable yet compelling Tokaji from Disznoko with a very long and sustained finish. This comes highly recommended—an outstanding 5 Puttonyos. -  Neal Martin
