Disznoko Kapi 2011 (96 WA)
“The 2011 Tokaji Aszu Kapi Vineyard 6 Puttonyos is an absolutely startling wine, frankly one of the best that I have tasted from the estate. It certainly surpasses my expectations given the bottle that I rated almost a year ago. This is their third single vineyard release following the 1999 and 2005 and having picked earlier, I feel this approach completely enhances the wine. It has a showstopping, crystalline bouquet that shimmers: Japanese yuzu, citrus fruit and an underlying stoniness (none of that chlorine tang that I picked up last time). The palate has a fabulous line of acidity running from start to finish: tensile, poised and with just a dab of white peach and nectarine on the mineral-rich finish. This is a fantastic Tokaji that should be a joy to drink for many years.”
Private: Disznókő Kapi 2011
Kapi is a single vineyard plot situated in the upper part of the southern slopes of Disznókő. Kapi Vineyard is planted exclusively to Furmint, the noblest and most ancient Tokaj variety. Its special character: Furmint mirrors the soils, and this separate bottling has tremendous lift and finesse due to the volcanic soils.
