Notes from the Winemaker:

This wine was made with bunches selected at the end of the harvest; bunches with overripe grapes and 40% of aszú grapes. The selection of bunches, which was begun in the vineyard, was completed on arrival at the winery. After a skillfull wine elaboration, with a fermentation lasting from two to three weeks, the wine stays aging in barrels almost half a year before the bottling.

The late harvest wines of Tokaj Oremus compete with similar wines from other regions around the world, its attractive relies on the aszú grapes content. Elegant wines, mild sweet with citric and honey aromas. The aszú grapes content which gives its specific caracter to the great Tokaj wines and the balance between the sweetness and acidity represent two factors that lead us to discover and understand the wines from Tokaj.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Delightfully sweet on entry, this late-harvest wine leads with delicate Mandarin orange, lemon blossom and canned peach aromas. It has flavors of apricot and peach and is velvety smooth on the palate. The finish is pleasant with a good level of acidity to counterbalance the sweetness. Jeff Jenssen" - (11/1/2019)

92 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"A mouthwatering, off-dry version that explodes with juicy blood orange and nectarine fruit, candied ginger and grapefruit peel notes and ample spice and herb accents. Light- to medium-bodied and expressive, with a long, racy, mineral-laced finish. Furmint, Hárslevelü, Sárga Muskotály and Zéta. Drink now through 2025. 2,917 cases made, 960 cases imported." - AN (Issue Sep 30, 2019)
