6 puttonyos are only made in exceptional vintages and from 1st Class Growths vineyards. It is typically a more intense, complex, noble and sweeter style than 5 puttonyos. The Tokaji Aszu Patricius 6-Puttonyos has a dense exotic and spicy bouquet with apricot jam and marmalade notes. The palate is medium-bodied with a fresh, vibrant marmalade and quince entry and honeyed finish. It feels long in the mouth with a hint of spice. This is drinking beautifully.

Winemaking

Aszu grapes are individually picked from bunches into 20 litre wooden tubs called puttony. The Aszu grapes are crushed, releasing their intensely sweet juice. The non-Aszu grapes added per barrel of base wine gives the final puttony level of the wine, as printed on the label. Fermentation takes place in used 140 litre Gonci barrels made from Hungarian oak, in cellars extending for over 2kms where natural yeasts abound, and can take one or two years. Aszu wines must legally be matured for three years. Royal Tokaji wines are usually aged for longer, however still retaining their distinctive uplifting acidity.
