DISZNOKO TOKAJI ASZU 5 PUTTONYOS
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 2010 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 65% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 15% Hárslevelu (incidentally there was no 6 Puttonyos released this year). Deeper in color, burnished gold. It has a complex and quite powerful bouquet with Manuka honey, candle wax and sesame oil. There is good depth on the palate, tangy marmalade and honey notes, crisp acidity with mandarin and dried quince, vibrant and captivating on the lively and vivacious finish. This is excellent and just brimming with energy. Tasted September 2016 - Neal Martin
