Pale to golden yellow. The heady intensity of wild flowers and fresh fruits (peach, plum, citrus, honey) abound in the bouquet. Velvety and deliciously rounded, the Disznókő Tokaji Late Harvest retains its vivacity with persistence on the palate. Light-hearted and energetic.
The name Disznókő – the rock of the wild boar – was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock sat atop a small hill overlooking the vineyards. Listed as a “first growth” as far back as 1732, this 150ha vineyard in the south west of the Tokaji region has long been regarded as one of the region’s finest.
As with much of Tokaji, Disznókő’s fortunes suffered under nationalisation during the Communist era. But, in 1992, it was purchased by AXA Millésimes (owners of Château Pichon Longueville and Quinta do Noval, amongst others) who have reinvigorated Disznókő and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
