Tokaji Aszu 2008 5 Puttonyos, Disznoko 500mL
500 ml bottle

The Iconic and esteemed dessert wine, Tokaji Aszu over the centuries has satisfied the sweet tooths of Tsars, Emperors and Kings. Disznoko is an historic estate, declared first class in the 1772 classification. In 1992 it was purchased by a French winery group that owns several Classified Bordeaux Chateaux. It's now a state of the art wine making facility with some of the best vineyards in Eastern Europe. This wine is made from 60% Furmint, 30% Harslevelu and 10% Zeta. The aszú grapes (affected by noble rot and shriveled on the vine) are collected manually one by one over the course of several vineyard passes in a total of 5 wooden hods and poured into a vat of must wine, according to the method established in the 17th century. After a maceration of several hours, the collected liquid is racked into barrels where it ferments slowly before being aged 2 years in oak barrels. The Wine Advocate scored this 96 points saying "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. Tasted September 2016."
