Tokaji is a sweet wine made from grapes affected by noble rot, a style of wine which has a long tradition in this region and it is the most famous Hungarian wine. Tokaji was the first wine knowingly to be made from botrytized or nobly rotten grapes, before Rhine wine, and perhaps two centuries before Sauternes. It owes its quality and character to semi-dried, extremely rich grapes; the late-ripening, sharp-tasting, thin-skinned “Furmint” and “Hárslevelü”, less susceptible but rich in sugar and aromas. These selected botrytized grapes which concentrate the sweetness in the grape are called Aszú and are put into a wooden hod called Putton for 6/8 days, a highly concentrated juice collects at the bottom of the containers, this juice is pure Essencia, made for sweetening purposes. Each Putton, holds 25 kg. of Aszú grapes. Then, its content of sugar depends on the number of puttonyos of grapes added to the dry wine.
