The 2006 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos will be released on the market in 2014. It manages to translate two styles of aszu: the sharp citric-driven Tokaji, thanks to its almost 12 grams per liter total acidity, and the fruit-driven style associated with a warm year. There is a little more residual sugar compared to previous vintages at 160 grams per liter and it was raised in oak for 30 months. It has a seductive, pure aszu bouquet with tropical fruit, dried honey, syrup of fig and orange zest that is very well-defined and already intense. The palate is medium-bodied with a very effervescent entry, Satsuma, grapefruit and mango all vying for attention. It is tight at the moment, even after four years in bottle, but it displays laser-like precision on the mineral finish. Excellent. Drink 2015-2035+
