Disznókõ, Tokaji 1413 Edes Szamorodni 2018

(2023) An interesting wine this, a classic Tokaji blend of 93% Furmint with 7% Hárslevelű, but representing a new, slightly lighter facet of the Tokaji Aszú story. It is comprised of some fully-botrytised grapes, and some that are late harvested, for a still very sweet (153g/l residual sugar), but fresher style. It spent 12 months ageing in two and three-year-old barrels. The nose is laden with honey and light lime marmalade aromas, plenty of sweet nectarine a nuances of Bergamot and tobacco. In the mouth it is unctuous and rich, fully sweet and so much exotic fruit and honey, with the acid singing clearly above the rich fruit and oak spice. A terrific new style of Tokaji. Price for a 50cl bottle. Watch the video for more information and food matching ideas.
