" The methods and traditions of producing Aszú wines have changed little since the 17th century. Aszú berries are macerated with top-quality, fully fermented dry, white wines. Depending on the vintage, the resulting Aszú wines mature at different sweetness levels, although they generally stay within a range of four to six puttonyos (“puttonyos" are used as the measurement of sweetness of the final wine: on a scale of one to six, the more puttonyos, the sweeter, richer and rarer the Tokaji). Carefully pruned vines in first and second growth vineyards, handpicked instead of machine-harvested grapes and barrel-aging for a minimum of three years in 14th century cellars ensures these rich, refreshing wines are always of the highest quality. Mainly Furmint and Hárslevelú with a touch of Muskotály."

4.5 stars "Bright apricot color and a vivid fruity nose. On the palate, fresh and lively, not sirupy at all. The mouthfeel is amazingly rich and light at the same time. Excellent with dried apricots."
