A bright, aromatic dessert wine, with vibrant acidity well-knit to the creamy profile of black tea leaf, spiced orange peel, toffee and dried peach flavors. Lightly mouthwatering and lingering, offering hints of spice and smoke. Drink now through 2025. 92 points, Wine Spectator
Tasted at the Disznóko vertical in London, the 2010 Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos is a blend of 65% Furmint, 20% Zéta and 15% Hárslevelu (incidentally there was no 6 Puttonyos released this year). Deeper in color, burnished gold. It has a complex and quite powerful bouquet with Manuka honey, candle wax and sesame oil. There is good depth on the palate, tangy marmalade and honey notes, crisp acidity with mandarin and dried quince, vibrant and captivating on the lively and vivacious finish. This is excellent and just brimming with energy. 94 points. Neil Martin, The Wine Advocate
Whereas nowadays the puttonyos number corresponds to a minimum amount of residual sugar in the wine, Disznókő still adheres to the ancient method; five wooden hods of 55 pounds of dried grapes are macerated with 136 litres of base wine before the resulting Aszú then ferments at a snail’s pace (for as long as it takes). It is then aged for two years in used Sauternes barrels and 25% new oak.
