Aszú is the top natural sweet wine category in Hungary. A wine style that has been made for hundreds of years, aszú wines are rich in complexity, amazingly balanced, and burst from flavor in your glass. Aszú wines are made from grapes that have been affected by botrytis (noble rot) and because they need a perfect combination of soil, grape and weather, they are only made in specific harvests. Every single grape is hand-picked at the optimum time, and the sweetness of the grape and acidity of the soil balance each other out to create a truly unique wine.
The Degenfeld 5 puttonyos is a classic Aszú that balances rich fruit, honey and ripe flavors exquisitely. A juicy, intense wine with a fine balance of sweetness and acidity that can only be found in the best Tokaji Aszú.
