The Tokaj Dorgó Vineyard is a selection specifically made for Champagnes and Châteaux by Disznókö’s team led by winemaker László Mészáros. Dorgó vineyard is located in a beautiful setting at the southern approaches of the Tokaj wine region,in the South-West facing slopes. Mostly planted by furmint grapes on volcanic soil between 150 and 200 metres of elevation. Dorgó has volcanic clay soil, on rhyolite bed rock. In the upper zones the soils are mixed with the rocks.
Pure expression of an exceptional terroir in an exceptional vintage. This single vineyard wine is extremely rare. It is made only when the Kapi Vineyard distinctively expresses its own personality and with only the most perfect Furmint aszú berries from this parcel.
Vineyard & Vinification Note
Harvested by hand on several passes through the “Kapi Vineyard”. The aszú berries were stored in stainless steel until vinification. These grapes were macerated, unpressed, in a fermenting must for 60 hours
Ageing 2 years in oak barrels
Very focused, pure fruit. Perfectly balanced acidity with a long lingering finish. A wine with outstanding freshness and mineral characteristics. A perfect combination of power and finesse – fruit and minerality.
Wine Spectator Tasting Note
This walks a fine line between racy acidity and rich, syrupy fruit character, as notes of lemon curd and passion fruit mingle with dried apricot, spice and honey. The finish is long, offering fine notes of saline and chalk. Drink now through 2035. Wine Spectator • 95 Points – Feb 2012
Wine Advocate Tasting Note
Tasted at the Disznoko tasting in London, the 2005 Tokaji Aszu Kapi Vineyard 6 Puttonyos was the second release and in this vintage the fruit was picked late, unlike the subsequent 2011 that was picked early. The difference between the two wines was clear to see. It has a very different bouquet compared to the 2011, more resinous and perhaps more Aszu-like in style, though without the same degree of precision of minerality. The palate is showing good weight in the mouth, richer and more viscous, more mellifluous than the 2011 with notes of dried honey, caramelised pear, apricot and yellow plum. It feels a little weightier compared to my first encounter with this Tokaji in 2013. It finishes in stylish fashion with quince jelly on the aftertaste, although if I had to choose, I would certainly pick the 2005 as the finest expression for this vineyard. That said, how can you really begrudge was remains an utterly delicious wine. Neal Martin • 93 Points –Oct 2016
Far more than a simple dessert wine. Enjoyable on its own of course, but with a surprising range of dishes too. Great paired with white meat with creamy sauces, venison with almond sauce, poultry with orange/cranberry sauces. Also excellent with fish, like smoked salmon marinated in red pepper, with seafood and with refined spicy and fusion dishes. A superb accompaniment to mature salty hard or blue cheeses – like Roquefort. Simply with fruits (apricot, pears or fruit salads) or fruit-based dessert (e.g. apricot tart). A natural choice instead of a dessert or to sip next to a quality cigar. Ideally enjoyed cool (11- 13°C). After opening, it retains its freshness for at least a week in the fridge. Ready to drink but you can also age it for 30 years or more.
