Oremus Late Harvest Tokaji 2020 (50cl)
Bunches are needed for this wine where at least half the grapes are Aszú noble berries, in other words, where there is a significant degree of noble rot.
The late harvest must ferments slowly, so slowly that the roofs of the wineries are often covered in ice and snow by the time it ends. Fermentation stops by itself at around 12% of alcohol.
The wine rests for another half year in small wood barrels in the underground wineries and then is aged for a further year in the bottle.
