Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007

Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 500ml 2007     
Sku: 1848749*

Tasting notes
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 Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 puttonyos tastes fresh, long and is always superbly complex and focused. Amazing length, often with a spicy finish. Spirited!

The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji - a little ingenue - is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+.
