Tasted at the Disznoko vertical in London, the 2008 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 70% Furmint, 20% Zeta 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.

Disznoko spreads over 250 acres at the south-west entrance of the Tokaj region. Tokaj is thought to be the first vineyard region in the world to have adopted a classification system and, incredibly, the entire Disznoko estate was classified as a first growth property in 1772 at the time
of the initial classification by royal decree. The estate's vineyards today are still wholly classified as first growth.
Golden color, citrus notes with pineapple, apricot and marmalade. Rounded, creamy structure with fresh and crisp acidity. Oustanding lingering finish to savor.
Made from 70% Furmint, 20% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu the aszu grapes (shrivelled grapes affected by noble rot and shrivelled on the vine) are collected manually one by one over the course of several vineyard passes in a total of 5 wooden hods of 55 pounds and poured into a vat of 136 liters of must wine, according to the method established in the 17th century
After a maceration of several hours, the "Aszu dough" obtained is filtered. The collected liquid is then racked into barrels where it ferments slowly before being aged 2 years in oak barrels.
