Royal Tokaji 5 Puttonyos 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

This wine is very complex; its intense sweetness is balanced by crispy acidity. On the palate, tropical fruit, lime and grapefruit meet with freshness. It has a very long finish. Royal Tokaji's Aszu wines are wonderful on their own as an aperitif or digestif, with cigars and petits fours. Given their bright acidity, these wines also pair well with a wide variety of foods, including foie gras, fruit tarts, chocolate desserts and a variety of cheeses.

Ebulliently floral on the nose, this decadently creamy Tokaji bursts with characteristic honey, peach preserve and dried fig sweetness. A streak of citrusy acidity adds balance, while subtle hints of caramelized sugar and tea leaves add twists to the long, honey-kissed finish.

Sweet, with luscious apricot, peach compote and golden raisin held up by a well of latent acidity that drives the spice, chalk and candied lemon zest notes on the long finish. Drink now through 2020.

Everything about this wine is deeply golden, from the color to the flavors, which rotate around roasted pineapple, peach and kumquat. The sweet fruit is matched with a ruddy, ferrous earthiness that makes the wine feel firm, and balances it toward the cheese course or less sweet desserts.
