The Tokaj legend has grown and grown in its four-hundred years of history. But it was not until
1630, when the greatness of Oremus vineyard was first spoken of. Today, it is the one with greatest universal acclaim. The Tokaj region lies within the range of mountains in Northeast Hungary. Oremus winery is located at the geographical heart of this region. The production of Aszú wine (teardrop wine) is a meticulous process only possible in exceptional vintages and under unique conditions which enable the development of “Botrytis Cinérea” or noble rot.

For hundreds of years it has been made in the same manner, adding 3 panniers (puttonyos) of 25kg. each, containing noble Aszú berries to a “Gönc“ barrel (136 litres) of base must. Aszú berries are macerated for two days until swollen, followed by a gentle press. Fermentation takes place in new Hungarian oak barrels; a slow process which can last up to two months. Ageing process is completed in 136 and 200-litre barrels for two to three years and bottled for an
additional year.

Aszú 3 Puttonyos is elegant and fresh, known for its high acidity which makes it a vibrant yet
velvety wine.

These wines are ready for drinking now but may potentially be stored for approximately 40 years if kept in optimum conditions: constant temperatura of 12-14 ºC and 60% relative humidity. Optimum drinking temperature is 10 ºC.
