Round and integrated acidity on the palate, fresh stone fruits flavours. Very pleasant and balanced, still very young but fully enjoyable.

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.

Grape

Aszú grapes: 100 % Furmint

Vineyard & Vinification Note

Soil: Clay, Rocks

Age of vines (avg.): 20 years

Area: 104 ha

Wine making:

The majority of the aszú berries used for our 6 Puttonyos were picked in the second half of the harvest, from the middle of October until the 12th of November. For the furmint it was already the second or third generation of aszú berries. The individually picked aszú berries were poured in stainless steel vats and stored there until the vinification. The aszú berries were gently crushed then soaked in fresh wine for 12 hours for skin contact. After a long pressing, the fermentation took place in stainless steel vats until the middle of December.

Ageing: The wine was aged in oak of 225 litres, with 25% of new oak, for two years.

Bottled in May 2018.

Tasting Note

Gold colour. The nose is very fine with floral and vegetal hints like tropical tree and sandal tree, followed by vanilla and spices aromas. Mouthfilling with round and integrated acidity on the palate, fresh stone fruits flavours. Very pleasant and balanced, still very young but fully enjoyable. Residual sugar: 157 g/l

Food Pairing

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.
