2006 Aszu “6 Puttonyos”

Tokaj, Hungary

Tokaj is a very unique wine growing region where the vineyards are planted atop 800 extinct volcanoes.  That concentration of volcanic soil produces grapes that are so high acidity, that even the overripe or botrytis effected berries used to produce the dessert wines are perfectly balanced.  This is the reason why the dessert wines from Tokaj have become so legendary.

This wine is 70% Furmint and 30% Hárslevelü sourced from estate vineyards with volcanic, mineral rich soils.  As is traditional, this wine contains a very high proportion of botrytized fruit.

This wine is fermented and then aged for 3 years in 220L Hungarian oak barrels. The resulting wine had 18.8% residual sugar and 9.5 g/L acidity.
