- Evolucio Furmint 2015 Product #31719 (In Stock)
While a lot of Hungary's Fermint grape ends up in sweet Tokaji, it also makes a great dry wine - like here! Nicely aromatic with floral, peach, grapefruit and white pepper aromas. Then it's round, fleshy, and mouth filling with flavors of tangy citrus pulp and pithy and a touch of peach. Finishes lip-smacking and fun with a touch of candied grapefruit peel lingering. A fine match for seafood and fun to just sip.
- Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Product #28360 (In Stock)
A classic Tokaji; medium-sweet.
The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji – a little ingenue – is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+. Wine Advocate 91 points
"Spicy aromas lead to candied citrus and clove flavors in this elegant dessert white. Moderately sweet, with bright acidity and fine length. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points
