Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos, Hungary, 2009
A rich honeyed raisin flavour with a long lingering finish.
Tokaji Aszú is known as one of the oldest botrytised wine types all over the world. Favourable parameters are offered to the formation of noble rot caused by Botrytis cinerea by the climatic conditions, soil circumstances and grape-varieties of Tokaj-region. As the result of noble rot aszú-berries represent the most important raw material of the world-wide known Tokaji Wine Specialities.
When producing Aszú wine refined winemaking methods are applied. Three, four, five or six puttonys (1 puttony is equivalent to 27 kg) of aszú-berries are added to a gönczi barrel (136 litres) containing new wine. After the extraction the high sugar-level aszú grape juice is pressed, then placed in oak barrels for ageing.
