Sauska Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2017
[USD] $ 54
Tokaji comes from boutique producer Sauska. Plenty of love goes into the wine as grapes are hand-harvested with only the best grapes selected. 2017 saw an early attack of botrytis. Known as Noble Rot, botrytis can help too make wines with a concentrated sweetness when picked at just the right point. The wine was fermented in barrels with indigenous yeast and then aged in new oak for 20 months.
Pale gold. Dominated by the freshness and kindness of dried fruits in the nose, typically apricot, mango and some herbs. Rich in taste, the sip is full and tight. Apricots and orange peel on palate.
Grape: Furmint, Hárslevelű, Kabar
Region: Tokaj, Hungary
