Tokaji Aszo 5-Butt Puklus Winery 1990

Winemaker's Notes:

Tasting Notes: Tokaji Aszo is truly one of the greatest natural dessert wines of the world. It is as though the autumn colours of the grape leaves lingered on in the wine. Every single shade is there. From the light golden-yellow color of the new Aszo, the brownish old gold of the mature Aszo to the reddish-brown color of the vintage Aszo. However it is not only the wine s color to admire. But also its oily- movement so typical of full bodied wines. The drops of Aszo gently slipping down the side of the glass hold out the promise of great things to come. It is almost impossible to distinguish Aszo s bouquet from its aroma. For the combination of the two in this wine is so unique that the merest whiff is enough to kindle our sense of taste. Perhaps ecstatic descriptions such as these should be followed by a simpler. more mundane description. A young Aszo is dominated by flavours reminiscent of raisins, which come from the Aszo berries shriveled by the noble rot. The complex aroma and bouquet of honey and grape flower dominate. Maturation produces the characteristic earthy and bready flavour, which, depending on the vintage and the part of the vineyard the grapes come from, are complemented by the taste of almonds, chocolate or Saint John s bread. Alcohol Percentage: 13 % Sugar Rate: 51+ g/l
