Disznókő, Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos 1999
A great and classic year for Tokaji, probably the best of the nineties due to its fabulous balance of rich Aszú and amazingly vivid acidity. It’s a bright orange-toned gold with an inviting bouquet of dried apricot and candied peel and a twist of spice. It has gorgeous, intense flavours of peach, honey and papaya, then an amazingly lively and youthful acidity. Tokaji’s ‘refreshing magic’ in a glass.
