Description

The Oremus wine estate has a long and colourful history and Tokaji was being produced there as early as 1620 by a Calvinist priest called Mate Szepsy Lacko. In 1993 the 33 hectare estate was bought by a Spanish consortium headed by David Álvarez, owner of Vega Sicilia. The vineyards are centred around 3 hills, Mandulas, Kupatka and Losce, where Furmint and Harslevu are planted. A new winery has been built in Tolcsva. The aim at Oremus is to produce Tokaji wines of elegance and balance with perfect harmony between the sweet fruit and natural acidity.
Tokaj Oremus Aszu 3 puttonyos is a sweet wine from Hungary. Aszú wines combine tradition, innovation and excellence, and become sublime wines with their roots in an unrepeatable land. Aszú wine can only be made in years of excellent harvests, when nature provides favourable climatic conditions for the development, in the best conditions, of the noble rot.
The 3 puttonyos in the title refers to the number of 25 kgs of aszú grapes (the grapes raisined by botrytis), which are mixed in the vat with 136 litres of conventional white wine, in which a slow fermentation takes place.
