Château Dereszla, Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos 2017Regular price €43.00
Noble rot or botrytis gives the grapes that yield this wine their intensity and sweetness, and careful hand-sorting selects the best of each bunch.
The higher the number of puttonyos, the more unctuous the wine, and this example is both lively and rich, with herbal and straw flavours mingling with those of marmalade, preserved lemons and honey in a lingering, mouth-filling moment of luxury.
Although considered a dessert wine, a sweet Tokaji makes a good partner for spicy pork and duck dishes and pâtés, as well as an ideal match with tropical fruit and smooth, rich puddings or blue and salty cheeses.
