The 2008 Tokaji Aszu Red Label 5-Puttonyos (known as “Blue Label everywhere else apart from the United States) has an attractive, comparatively uncomplicated bouquet with notes of dried honey, wax resin and a smear of marmalade. The palate is actually better than the nose, with pleasant, nutty, honeyed fruit (marmalade and quince to the fore), although the finish is a little abrupt. Still, for the price, this is a perfect introduction to the delights of Tokaji Aszu.

Wine maker notes
This perfectly balanced 5 puttonyos wine is now widely available throughout the world. Royal Tokaji’s 1st growth Nyulaszo vineyard is the benchmark for quality. As in all aszu wines, the three grape varieties are Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat de Lunel. The characteristics are a vivid gold colour with honeyed apricot and orange peel flavours which are uplifted with dramatic acidity.
