Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2008
Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is an exceptional, high quality blend of Furmint, Harslevelu and Zeta aszu grapes, offering enticing aromas of fresh fruit, wildflowers, honey and creamy vanilla. Perfectly balanced notes of peach, lemon, honey and tropical fruit appear on the palate, and merge with a delicate mineral note on the long finish.
The Disznoko estate is situated at the south-west entrance of the Tokaj region, about 250km from Budapest. Although Disznoko produces a number of wines, the aszu harvest is considered the most important. The most time-consuming and labor-intensive part of the vintage is the hand-harvesting of the aszu grapes, which are the shriveled grapes affected by noble rot that have dried on the vine-stock.
