Two from Tokaji star Disznókő, one dry, one sweet

Two wines from leading Tokaji producer Disznókő: one dry and one sweet.

Disznókő Tokaji Dry Furmint 2016 Tokaji, Hungary
12.5% alcohol. This is crisp, fresh and fruity with a nice stony edge to the lemon and pear fruit. Subtle herbal notes, too. It’s quite a stony, mineral wine with a light body and good acidity. A bit Chablis like: it’s more about freshness, texture and minerality than it is about fruit flavour. 89/100

Disznókő Tokaji Aszu 6 Puttonyos 2002 Tojaki, Hungary
Rich bronze/gold colour. Bold and intense with thick cut marmalade, grapefruit pith and apricot flavours, together with a spicy bite and some nice peach and pear notes. Concentrated and very sweet, but with the sweetness well balanced by the savoury notes. Great depth to this complex wine. 95/100
