Disznókő, 5 Puttonyos Aszú 2012

2012 was a hot and dry summer that brought on very early ripening in Tokaj. Consequently, the Aszú berries developed slowly, and the botrytis along with it. This resulted in an Aszú with an intensely aromatic nose displaying peach and apricot aromas and floral notes. This vintage has medium richness and body, creamy structure, and freshness, though the acidity is lower and rounder than average. With the vivacious acidity balancing the sweetness, Disznókő’s 5 Puttonyos Aszú can be savored on its own instead of dessert, at the end of the meal, or chilled as a refreshing aperitif or with canapés, pâtés, or foie gras. It is also excellent with a wide range of dishes such as poultry, white with cream-based sauces, mushroom or seafood risotto. The Aszú grapes used for this wine were Furmint (85 percent) and Hárslevelű (15 percent). The blend for the base wine and must was Furmint (50 percent) and Hárslevelű (50 percent). The majority of the Aszú grapes were intensely botrytised, therefore they were macerated in finished base wine for half a day. The most shriveled Aszú grapes were soaked in fermenting must for skin contact. After pressing, the fermentation took place in stainless steel vats. The wine was aged for two years in oak barrels of 225 litres, with 25 percent being new oak.

In 1700 Tokaj developed one of the world’s earliest vineyard classification systems, and Tokaj is most famous for being the birthplace of Tokaji Aszú—one of the world’s oldest sweet wines.

Located in northeastern Hungary—which historically has been the crossroads of Central Europe—the region is framed by natural borders: the town of Tokaj in the southwest corner where the Bodrog and the Tisza rivers meet, the Bodrog river to the southeast, and the Zemplén hills to the northwest. The Tokaj region has 5,500 hectares of vineyards and 27 towns and villages. Wines from the different vineyards can all be quite different, and winemakers here love to experiment with single vineyard wines.

On top of its long and fascinating history, the Tokaj region has so much for wine-lover’s to discover. It is rich in a variety of volcanic soils; has a microclimate ideal for bringing on noble rot (botrytis); grows some really interesting indigenous grape varieties; and has a truly enchanting subterranean labyrinth of mould-covered cellars where the wines age. Though Tokaj is best known for its sweet Aszú wines, which are made from botrytized grapes, more than half of the wine it produces is dry.

Six official grape varieties grow in Tokaj. The superstars are the indigenous varieties Furmint and Hárslevelű, with Furmint being the high profile grape that tends to steal the show. Other varieties grown in smaller quantities are Sárga Muskotály, Kövérszölö, Zéta (a crossing of Furmint and Bouvier), and Kabar (a crossing of Hárslevelű and Bouvier). All of these wines are being increasingly made in dry styles, which winemakers are embracing because they are more marketable.

But it’s the sweet wines which make the region so unlike any other. They rely on the development of botrytis, which comes with the right weather conditions. The harvest here is a long, labor-intensive process which starts with the dry wine harvests, and continues with the harvesting of the botrytized grapes, which is done by hand.

In addition to Aszú (which is made with botryized grapes which are selectively harvested by hand, one berry at a time), other styles include late harvest wines, sweet and dry versions of Szamorodni (made with whole clusters of grapes containing a mixture of both botrytized and healthy grapes), Forditás (made from the second pressing after Aszú is made), Máslás (made from the second pressing after Aszú is made), and Eszencia (made from the free-run juice of Aszú berries, so thick and concentrated that it only reaches about four percent alcohol).

Disznókő Winery is one of the Tokaj region’s largest privately owned wineries. László Mészáros has been running the estate for a few decades now, and under his supervision Disznókő has developed a unique style of Aszú wines. They are made in a less oxidative style, with less oak aging, sharper acidity, and a fresher mouthfeel. Disznókő was arguably the pioneer in the production of this style of lighter, easier-to-drink sweet Aszú wines. Disznókő is one of Tokaj’s most important wineries. Since it was established in the early 1990s by the French company AXA Millesime , Disznókő has been focused on producing balanced, easy to drink sweet wines, which spend a shorter period aging in barrels.
