Tokaji Aszu Puttonyos Kapi 2011

50 cl

The 2011 vintage was hot and dry. The ripening came very early but botrytisation was slow and limited due to a lack of humidity. The quality of the aszú berries was exceptional: great concentration from extreme passerillage, or shrivelling. This dryness meant we made the lowest proportion of Eszencia ever for the estate! We have been delighted with the unexpected freshness from a very hot vintage. Bright, these aromatic wines are very noble but easy drinking. Beautiful.

Tasting Notes from Celtic Whiskey Shop and Wines on the Green
Nose Resinous and concentrated on the nose with aromas of fresh oranges, maramalade, orange blossom and lemon.
Palate Sweet and medium to full bodied with very high acidity which keeps the intense sweetness balanced. Concentrated, sweet fruit flavours of lemon, orange, and little spice, then some floral notes and honey.
Colour Pale gold in colour.
