Disznókő, Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2007
Rain during harvest meant ideal conditions for noble rot to make an appearance in already perfectly ripened grapes. This is a very classic expression of the 5 Puttonyos Aszú style, with expressive aromas of orange zest, dried apricot and peach, and a hint of dried fruit. It’s intensely sweet to taste but its bright, tangy acidity means it almost seems dry and savoury.
