2007 Château Dereszla Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos (500ml)

SKU #1148300 95 points Wine Spectator

 *Ranked #20, Top 100 Wines of 2013* Ripe, intense and dynamic, with juicy layers of sweet pineapple, apricot and mango puree. Generous yet tightly focused, with an abundance of vanilla bean, mace and other exotic spices that emerge on the long finish.  (6/2013)

Wine & Spirits

 The D’Aulan family, owners of Alta Vista in Mendoza, bought this estate in 2000. Their 2007 5 puttonyos has the pleasant bitterness of broom honey, and a similar savory sweetness. It’s dark and warming, with lots of smoky, earthy, roasted fruit flavor. For a foie gras terrine.  (12/2012)

WOW!!! This wine has an intensity which is hard to match. This is why people fall in love with Hungarian Tokaji.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
