Aszú wine is only possible in exceptional vintages, under particular conditions which promote the development of botrytis cinereal (noble rot). For centuries the “recipe” has been the same with 5 puttonyos of berries affected by botrytis being added to a 136-litre barrel (Gōnc barrel) of must. Made by the owners of Vega Sicilia.
Delicious tones of honey and caramelised fruit abound. Complex, lush with balancing acidity, excellent length. Classic Tokaji marmalade and honey flavours.
