TOKAJI LATE HARVEST

2016 Disznókő

IN STOCK
Grapes Furmint
Colour White
Origin Hungary, Tokaji
ABV 13%

The late-harvest sweet wines of Tokaji are lighter than the traditional (and pricier) aszu wines. This is gorgeously fruity with peach and tropical fruit, while spices such as ginger, along with a bite of acidity, add to the feeling of freshness. Fabulous with fruit desserts. Hamish Anderson, The Telegraph (Nov 2018)

*Case price discount: Mix any 12 bottles (or 9l equivalent) of wine or 6 bottles of Champagne, Spirits, Sweet Wine or Fortified to get the 'case price' for each bottle.

Aged for a few months only in oak. Deep honey colour. Honey and a little simple on the nose. Without the nerve and depth of a fine Tokaji but clean and fresh. Not sickly just a little bland for any palate that knows the real thing. Drinking range: 2018 - 2020 Rating: 16 Jancis Robinson MW OBE - www.JancisRobinson.com(Nov 2018)

Disznókő

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.
