Intro to Disznoko Tokaji Late Harvest –
Disznoko Tokaji Late Harvest is the first step on the journey of sweet wines from this producer, the late harvest tokaji is a clean and elegant expression of the Disznókő style from Hungary.
Full tasting note and wine making –
In this vintage there was a long winter, late bud break and flowering, a hot summer followed by cooler and rainy September prior to harvest. The grapes started to ripen late and we had to wait for the appearance of the noble rot. From the end of September the botrytis developed continuously on the grapes and brought plenty of great quality aszú berries and very rich, flavourful grapes for Late Harvest. The wines have surprisingly high concentration and intensity, a broad structure and beautiful apricot, citrusy aromas.
Careful selection of entirely botrytised part bunches between 23rd of October and 9th of November followed by full bunch pressing without destemming, and fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks. The wine was aged for six months in oak barrels of two or three wines, with a capacity of 225 litres in the traditional underground cellar of Tokaj.
The producer –
Dating back to 1413 on the land registry and ranked as a Tokaji first growth from 1732, Disznókő is known for producing top Tokaji dessert wines. Over a period of many years of dedication, the winery has crafted its own style of Tokaji wines which are the legendary sweet white wines of Hungary.
Driven by a passion for the purity of the fruit, freshness of the grape varieties and the complexity of the Botrytis, Disznókő has created a portfolio of utterly delicious wines. A well-deserved standout in any desserts wines range.
Drink with –
Disznoko Tokaji Late Harvest is a great accompaniment to light desserts such as pavlovas combining cream and fruit flavours.
