Details

Tokaj Classic Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos, botrytised, sweet, dessert wine of Hungary. This truly classic dessert wine made from grapes affected by noble rot has notes of orange, oriental spice and apricot. The sweetness is beautifully balanced by taught acidity which means it's never cloying. The 5 Puttonyos refers to the traditional method of determining how sweet the wine would be - baskets (puttonyos) of the botrytised grapes would be added to the must, and the more that were added, the sweeter the result would be. Nowadays the classification is given by the residual sugar left, ranging from 3-6 Puttonyos, 6 being the sweetest. This cuvee is made from 50% Furmint, 30% Lindenleaf and 20% Muscat, with 153 g/l residual sugar. This is top quality Tokay from a well known and sought after producer. Try with fruit tarts or foie gras.


The winery is situated in the ancient town of Mád and there are eight hectares under vine in the “Grand Cru” Kiraly and Betsek areas, planted to Furmint, Harslevelu (Lindenleaf) and Muscat. It is owned by cellist Andras Bruhacs and two German fellow classical musicians. The vines average age is around 30 years old, producing extremely low yields. Imre Galambosi, as well as being the winemaker, was also mayor for a span of eight years. Having renovated the winery, they have resumed the production of world-class wines, a practice which had all but faded into obscurity in the area. This winery are now producing some of the world's best sweet wines in this historic region.
