Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2010

50 cl

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!

Making Techniques Each aszú berry was individually picked and then stored in stainless steel until vinification on the three or four passages through the vineyard. The aszú berries with more Botrytis character were soaked in a finished wine and macerated for 12 hours. The rest of the aszú grapes, those more dried and shrivelled, were macerated in fermenting must for 3 days. After pressing and finishing its fermentation in stainless steel, the wines were barrel aged for two and a half years, partly in new oak. Bottled October 2010.
Cellaring/Ageing Potential Ready to drink but with an important ageing potential (for 20 years or more). Best served cool (11- 13°C) to enjoy the finest nuances. After opening, it retains its freshness for at least a week in the fridge.
Serving Suggestion
