Nyulászó, 6 Puttonyos, Tokaj
Aromas of white flowers, jasmine and orange zest lead the way for flavors of apricot conserves, orange pith and white-peach juice on the palate. This delightful single-vineyard wine from the Nyulaszo vineyard offers a delicate balance of sweetness and acidity, with a persistent finish.
Wine & Spirits
This feels youthful and lean, the peach and lemon flavors pinned to the wine's broad texture by sharp acidity. While it's succulent and almost refreshing now, this is sure to build in complexity with time in bottle.
Slightly closed on the nose at the moment – some notes of acacia, poached peaches and apricots. Quite a compact style, with searing acidity. Lithe and mineral, with an almost dry perception on the finish thanks to so much acid.
The 2016 Nyulászó First Growth Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos, which delivers 180g/L residual sugar, has a deep, honeyed, slightly more introverted bouquet compared to the Ste. Tamás. It gradually reveals scents of manuka honey, orange pith and quince jus, yet it clearly deserves several years to really open. The palate is very well balanced, harmonious and brimming with tension. Pears, Seville orange marmalade, hints of mandarin and fresh figs vie for attention. This is a powerful, intense Tokaji, but razor-sharp, delivering real precision and "bite" toward the finish. Outstanding.
