- Bottle Size
- Wine Type
Dating back to 1413 on the Hungarian land registry and ranked as a Tokaji first growth from 1732, Disznókő is known for producing top Tokaji. Each Furmint aszú berry was individually picked and then stored in stainless steel until vinification on the three or four passes through the vineyard. Two thirds of the aszú grapes were macerated (unpressed) in fermenting must for two days and one third were macerated in finished wine for a half day. After pressing, the fermentation of the wine was finished in stainless steel. The wine was then aged in the cellar for two and a half years (25 % in new oak). The wine is a brilliant golden colour. There are ripe fruits (peach, apricot, plum, citrus) on the nose with honey and wild flowers. Pear, grapefruit, almond and a touch of vanilla on the palate. It is rich but has high acidity which cuts through the sweetness; it has a light, silky and creamy structure and very good length. Drink chilled with canapés, pâtés, foie gras, creamy sauces, Asian food, young blue cheese and fruit-based desserts.
