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. Spirited!
With the vivacious acidity balancing the sweetness, Disznókő Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos can be enjoyed alone, but also with a wide range of dishes.
Our favourite moments
Chilled, as a refreshing aperitif.
On its own, instead of dessert, at the end of the meal.
Sunday morning wine – savouring during cooking and tasting along the way with the various ingredients and at different stages – and when we sit down to feast.
- Aperitif: served with canapés. Accompanying pâtés, foie gras.
- Main: poultry, white meat with creamy sauces. Mushroom or seafood risotto . East Asian, slightly spicy dishes such as Thai green curry chicken. Dim sum.
- Cheese: younger and not too salty blue cheese.
- Dessert: simply with some fruits (apricot, pears or fruit salads) or with a fruit-based dessert (e.g. apricot tart, fruit cake, mandarin sorbet).
Ready to drink but with an important ageing potential (for 20 years or more).
