Tokaj-Oremus Aszú 5 Puttonyos 2013 Review

In Hungary, a Puttonyo was a 55-pound basket of grapes. And when they were filled with noble rot grapes (called Aszú), it defined the Puttonyo sweetness of the resulting wine. The more Puttonyos added to a wine barrel the sweeter the wine. Today the measurement is in grams yet winemakers still cling to the old terminology and convert. This wine comes from five Puttonyos which translates to 120 grams of sugar. The result is a soft, luscious, almost waxy sweet wine with great balance. There is a sharp, welcome citrus angle and smells like creamy chamomile and apricots. Grab some sheep-milk-based cheeses and baklava and this wine will shine.
