Kapi is a super-premium 6 puttonyos produced from a single parcel (the first 'Grand Cru' site identified and vinified separately by Disznókő) in very limited quantities. It is only produced in exceptional vintages - so far only three vintages (including this 2011) have been released. Planted on the upper part of the southern slopes of Disznókő, this plot has slightly lighter and more mineral soil than elsewhere on the estate and has come to be identified for the delicacy and precision of its wines. Not only is it a single-vineyard wine but also a single variety wine; Kapi is 100% Furmint. The 2011 was harvested via three passes through the vineyard between 28 September and 11 November yielding individually selected berries that were then steeped in a Furmint-based must.
Tasted at the Disznoko tasting in London, 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.
