Disznókö Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (500 ml)

Disznókö is one of the most famous producers of sweet Tokaji in the world.
The estate owns only one large vineyard of about 250 acres, classified in 1772 and planted only with local indigenous grape, in particular Furmint. These wines are considered among the best sweet wines in the world, classified in puttonyos according to their residual sugar levels that express at their best the Hungarian tradition and terroir.

The 6 Puttonyos Aszú wines, called the Gold of Hungary, are vinified based on a method dating back to the seventeenth century. The berries macerate for several hours to obtain what is called the Aszú dough which is then filtered. The juice is collected and put in oak barrels, where it will ferment slowly. Today, the higher the residual sugar is, the greater the number of puttonyos will be.

”The key word for the 2002 vintage is precision, like an archer aiming from afar but reaching target with accuracy and agility. The wines have a very aromatic and soft attack, followed by a wonderful mouthwatering freshness.” – László Mészáros
