Chateau Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos 2006
This wine is a blend of 6 Puttonoyos (330 Pounds) of Aszù grapes with 136 liters of basic wine. Aszù grapes are late-harvested and botrytized, so the sugar concentration remains very high. Aszù grapes macerate with fermenting must for 14 hours. The second fermentation is done in stainless steel tanks, where it is matured for two months.
This tightly wound and focused sweetie offers intense acidity harnessing ... Drink now through 2035. -NW
The year 2000 was one of the best harvest for the Tokaji Aszu wines. Long summer and moist fogy fall was perfect condition for the Bortrytis. (Noble Rot) This vintage will be remembered. The color is Liquid Gold and the nose like an orchard of orange blossoms and a touch of sweet Bortrytis. The aromas and flavors of honey and orange enrobe the palate in perfect harmony. Long languid finish with elegant complexity.
Way too acidic and sweet. Not my kind of wine. I like the golden yellow/brown colour though.
