Tokaji 3 Puttonyos

2011

6/500

Aszú wine production starts with specialised picking of individual botrytis-affected grapes. These shrivelled grapes are pounded into a paste and stored in tubs called puttonyos, which are then mixed in with a base wine in fixed proportions (3 puttonyos per every 136-litre cask of base wine for Aszú 3 Puttonyos, etc), and left to macerate 6 to 8 hours for extraction of sugar and flavor. After pressing, this sugar-rich mixture slowly continues fermentation and undergoes long oxidative aging in the cool cellars.
