Characteristics Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos
Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos is a sweet wine made with the Furmint and Hárslevelű varieties, produced by Château Dereszla in the Tokaj-Hegyalja region, Hungary.
Château Dereszla is a century-old winery founded in the 18th century in the Tokaj region, which is world-renowned for its sweet wines made from grapes affected by Botrytis cinerea, also known as “noble rot”.
To make Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos, the grapes are harvested by hand to be able to carefully select the grapes affected by Botrytis cinerea, with the final amount of sugar measured in puttonyos. A puttonyo is a kind of basket with an approximate capacity of 25 kg. It is used as a measure to work out the quantity noble rot clusters, which they call Aszú, and which are subsequently poured into the base wine in 136-litre barrels. The minimum quantity for this class of wines is 3 puttonyos and the maximum is 6. The more puttonyos it contains, the sweeter it will be.
The resulting wine ages for three years in Hungarian oak barrels.
Château Dereszla Aszú 5 Puttonyos is an excellent example of the traditional Tokaji wines and is a delicious and elegant dessert in its own right.
