Dobogó Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos (50 cl)

Hungary, Tokaji

One of the top producers in one of the world’s greatest sweet wine regions. This is a world class dessert wine, with remarkable levels of concentration and balance. Notes of Seville orange marmalade and honey, sweet, but with exhilarating mouth cleansing acidity. Wonderful texture, balance and vitality – this is intoxicating.”

Origin

The estate is centred around the First Growth volcanic vineyards of Mád and Tállya, around 30 years old, and planted with Furmint, Hárslevelu and Muscat. Furmint is the grape which is particularly adept at shriveling through the actions of noble rot (as in Sauternes). Yields are miniscule - restricted to an average of one kilogram of grapes per vine!

Grape Variety

70% Furmint, 20% Hárslevelu and 10% Moscato/Muscat.

Picking in 2007 was carried out over a two month period, finishing at the end of October. After fermentation, the wine was aged for 3 years in large oak barrels.

Alcohol Percentage

11% abv with 208g/lt residual sugar

Cellar Potential

Drink now and over the next 5+ years.

Producer

Situated in the north-east corner of Hungary, Dobogó was founded in 1869 and it is owned by the Zwack family. They only produce 6 Puttonyos in outstanding years (the more usual measure is 5 Puttonyos). Puttonyos are the baskets of botrytis (noble rotted) grapes (of about 20-25 kg) which are mashed into paste and added to non botrytis wine to create the luxuriant and sweet dessert wine.

Food Match

Traditionally served with pâté in Hungary at the beginning of the meal, this will work equally well with any refined fruit and caramelised dessert, less well with cheese; or just a lovely after dinner drink to sip and savour.

Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

"An intoxicating bouquet of beeswax, honeysuckle, freesia and shea butter leads the way for flavors of peach nectar, apricot preserves, citrus zest and orange blossom. This wine is truly exquisite on the palate, marked by a delicate balance of ongoing sweetness and lively acidity."
