Sauska 5 Puttonyus Tokaji (half btl)

Description

This is a wonderful young Tokaji that is aromatic, fruity, vibrant and highly concentrated. The bouquet is highly redolent of citrus, apricot jam and wild honey. On the palate it is opulent yet remarkably fresh, with intense flavours of dried peach, fig, marmalade, honey and caramel. A delicious wine by itself but it is sensational with blue cheese.

Extra Notes

It is the world's oldest sweet wine with production dating back to the 1650s. The micro climate in this miraculous corner of Mittel Europa is such that the grapes are affected by noble rot (aszú) and so produce exceptional sugar levels, which is measured by 'Puttonyos' from 1-6, with 6 being the sweetest. Production techniques are very specific to Tokaji and include the addition of grape syrup and paste and slow fermentation under a film of local yeast, rather like sherry, over many a year. The Sauska vineyards are family-owned and the oldest vines date back well over 20 years.
