Golden to deep amber depending on its age. When young, the nose bursts with intensity: fresh fruits (very often apricot) and citrus aromas. Over 10 years old, the wine gains even greater aromatic complexity filled with dried fruits, spicy and honey notes. A display of the vintage character in flavours. A beautiful balance between vivacious acidity and sweetness. The Disznóko Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos tastes fresh, long and is always superbly complex and focused. Amazing length, often with a spicy finish.
With the vivacious acidity balancing the sweetness, Disznóko Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos can be enjoyed alone, but also with a wide range of dishes.
90 Pts – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate
Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2012 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is 100% Furmint in terms of Aszu grapes. It has a more complex bouquet than the 2013 with dried honey, grilled walnut, lanolin and yellow flowers, the kind of nose that seduces you, draws you in. The palate is medium-bodied with a viscous opening, spicier than the 2013, although it does not quite deliver the same level of concentration and intensity. It gently fans out towards the finish, although I would like a little more depth to develop, so that there is more presence.
