Five “Other” Wine Types/Categories Doing Well On-Premise in 2016
Make no mistake, wines from these categories are doing very well in restaurants, and should continue to do so for years.
Special Report: Tokaji Aszu — Tiny Production, Rising Quality
Big changes are taking place in the Hungarian region of Tokaj, which has been known for centuries as the source of one of the world’s greatest wines — Aszu. Here, we explain what Aszu is, how it is produced, recent vintages, leading producers, and food pairing suggestions.
Vertical Tasting Report: Disznoko — A Great Aszu Producer (Aszus 1993-2011)
An in-depth tasting and review of nearly all the Aszus that Disnoko has yet released. An eye-opening tasting — underscored by the fact that most of the wines are still available (by special order, in library quantities) through the winery’s importer.
More than 950 wines are recommended here, from 13 countries, including:
– USA: Top 2013 Pinot Noirs & Chardonnays, exceptional 2012 Cabernet Sauvignons
– Great wine values from Argentina (Malbec), Australia (Riesling, Shiraz), Chile (Carmenere)
– Italy: Fine wines from Soave; great Morellino di Scansano values; outstanding Montefalco reds
– Superb wines from New Zealand, Portugal, Spain & South Africa
