Tokaj Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2010 | 50cl

The Tokaj Oremus wine estate has a long and colourful history, with Tokaji being produced there as early as 1620 by a Calvinist priest called Mate Szepsy Lacko. In 1993, the 33-hectare estate was bought by a Spanish consortium headed by David Álvarez, the owner of Vega Sicilia. The aim at Oremus is to produce Tokaji wines of elegance and balance with perfect harmony between the sweet fruit and natural acidity.

The production of Aszú wine (teardrop wine) is a meticulous process only possible in exceptional vintages and under particular conditions which promote the development of "Botrytis Cinérea" (noble rot). For hundreds of years it has been made in the same manner, adding to a "Gönc" barrel (136 litres) of must, 5 panniers (puttonyos) with 25 kg of noble Aszú berries.

Aszú berries are macerated for two days until swelling and later gently pressed. Fermentation takes place in new Hungarian oak barrels; a slow process which can take up to two months. The ageing process is completed in 136 and 200 litre barrels for 2 to 3 years and bottled for an additional year.

The Tokaj Oremus Tokaji Aszú 5 puttonyos is an emphatic, exciting wine with aromas of maturity and elegance. It is an overwhelming wine, surprising, beyond compare.
