Fresh aromatics of wild flower, peach flesh and almond. Decent weight on the palate nicely textured quite rich with stone fruit, flesh and then chalky salty minerality on the juicy finish.

A dry wine with purity and brightness as well as great volume and a firm underlying line of mineral intensity. A wine of considerable character.

An exceedingly elegant dry white made from Hungary's furmint grape, with a gentle tinge of apricot skins and citrus, but defined by its glacial calm and sleek control. I love the chic glass stopper.

The name Disznókő - the rock of the wild boar - was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock sat atop a small hill overlooking the vineyards. Listed as a "first growth" as far back as 1732, this 150ha vineyard in the south west of the Tokaji region has long been regarded as one of the region's finest. As with much of Tokaji, Disznókő's fortunes suffered under nationalisation during the Communist era. But, in 1992, it was purchased by AXA Millésimes (owners of Château Pichon Longueville and Quinta do Noval, amongst others) who have reinvigorated Disznókő and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
