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 2011 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is 100% Furmint (Aszu grapes). It has an expressive and focused, bouquet, spice and dried honey, white flowers and candle wax. The palate is classic in style and actually almost Sauternes-like. It is certainly very well balanced and minerally, gently caressing the mouth with a linear finish that lingers nice. There is a little nuttiness here and a pleasing salinity coming through with continued aeration. This is lovely in a more understated Tokaji style. Tasted September 2016.
