Wine maker notes
Tokaj white dessert wines are uniquely made from 100% Furmint grapes at the Tokaj-Hetszolo Estate, and are famed throughout the world. The incomparable richness of the Aszu nose comes from the Botrytris cinerea, which considerably increases the sugar content. These overripe grapes lose the water they contain and become dry, or aszu in Hungarian. Aszu grapes are thus harvested as late as possible, by hand, with each person picking 6-8 kilos per day. After one month’s fermentation in barrels, the wine is aged in oak cases for two years, followed by one year in bottles.
