2010 Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos, Tokaj-Hegyalja, Hungary
"Please note the image is of a representative bottle. For pictures of the actual, bottle please contact the store."
Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2010 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 65% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 15% Hárslevelu (incidentally there was no 6 Puttonyos released this year). Deeper in color, burnished gold. It has a complex and quite powerful bouquet with Manuka honey, candle wax and sesame oil. There is good depth on the palate, tangy marmalade and honey notes, crisp acidity with mandarin and dried quince, vibrant and captivating on the lively and vivacious finish. This is excellent and just brimming with energy.
94 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A bright, aromatic dessert wine, with vibrant acidity well-knit to the creamy profile of black tea leaf, spiced orange peel, toffee and dried peach flavors. Lightly mouthwatering and lingering, offering hints of spice and smoke. Drink now through 2025.
