Dobogó Tokaji Aszú 6 Puttonyos 2017

Dobogó only produce 6 Puttonyos Tokaj Aszú in the best vintages. Tokaj Aszú is made from grapes affected by "noble rot", a form of botrytis which dehydrates the grapes and concentrates the sugars, aromas and acidity. The grapes are grown in the 30 year old Dobogó Pincészet, First-Growth vineyards in the volcanic subregion of Mád and Tállya. The vineyards are planted with 60% Furmint, 30% Hárslevelu and 10% Muscat Lunel. Yields for the 6 Puttonyos were restricted to an average of one kilogram of grapes per vine. The Aszú grapes were harvested by hand. After crushing, the sticky must was added to a sweet base wine for one night to macerate, in a ratio of one kilogram of Aszú grapes to one litre of base wine. After pressing, the wine was transferred to large 300-litre oak barrels, part new oak and part used, where it remained for 2-3 years before bottling. The wine spent three more years ageing in the Dobogó’s cellar before release. This Tokaji is deep gold in colour and wonderfully expressive on the nose with notes of dates, mangoes and apricots. On the palate, there are flavours of grapefruit and honey with a great mineral acidity balancing the intense sweetness.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
