OREMUS ASZU 5 PUTTONYOS 50CL
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 5 panniers (puttonyos) of 25 kg. 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.
Citrus, peach and apricot aromas characterize the nose of this Aszú 5 puttonyos 2010; rich and
intense on the palate with a long aftertaste of orange blossom and spices.
This wine is ready to drink now holding a potential ageing window of approximately 40 years if kept in ideal conditions: constant temperatura of 12-14 ºC and 60% relative humidity. Optimum drinking temperature is 10 ºC.
