Rated 95 by Robert Parker
The 2006 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos will be released on the market in 2014. It manages to translate two styles of aszu: the sharp citric-driven Tokaji, thanks to its almost 12 grams per liter total acidity, and the fruit-driven style associated with a warm year.

Additional Information on Oremus Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2006

Winery: Oremus

Country: Hungary

Hungary's wine industry suffered a real drop in reputation throughout most of the twentieth century due to the homogenization of wines under the Soviet Union. However, today the historic wineries of Tokaj and the regions around the great Balaton lake are working tirelessly to bring Hungary's wines to the world once again, and demonstrate just how wonderful and varied the country's produce is. By far the most highly esteemed of all Hungary's wines are the famous Tokaji wines – once the favorite of the crowned heads of Europe, now a favorite with anyone looking for something unique, flavorful and surprising. Tokaji wines are made using noble rot, which withers the grapes and concentrates the sugars of the fruit. The resulting wine is slightly viscous, and packed full of fascinating flavors.
