More information Tokaji Oremus Late Harvest 2017 50 CL (Hungary) White Wine
Oremus Late Harvest combines tradition and innovation and is a new concept among the winery's wines. It is the ideal way to enter the magical world of Tokaj's sweet treasures.
Late Harvest is produced using a coupage of different varieties. These include the Furmint, whose acidity creates the perfect balance with the sweetness, while the Hárslevelű adds mellowness and a silky texture. The Kövérszőlő and Zéta increase the mellowness and fruitiness, along with the strength of the wine. And then there is the golden Sárga Muskotály that rounds out the nose of the wine.
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.
It is noted for its floral tones, mixed with mellow and citric hints. Fine and elegant nose and it is rich and persistent on the palate. The fine acidity and the sweet fruitiness create a perfect balance.
The Tokaj legend has grown and grown in its four-hundred years of history; but it was not until 1630, when the greatness of Oremus vineyard was first spoken of. Today, it is the one with greatest universal acclaim.
The Tokaj region lies within the range of mountains in Northeast Hungary. Oremus winery is located at the geographical heart of this region.
At harvest, bunches are picked several times a day but. Only those containing at least 50% of botrytis grapes, are later pressed, giving the noble rot a leading role. Late Harvest is an interesting coupage of different grape varieties producing an exceptionally well-balanced wine.
Fermentation takes place in new Hungarian oak barrels (136- litre "Gönc" and 220-litre "Szerednye") for 30 days and stops naturally when alcohol level reaches 12 %. Then, the wine ages in Hungarian oak for six months and sits in bottle for a 15-month ageing period.
Late Harvest is a harmonious, fresh, silky wine. It is very versatile, providing a new experience in each sip.
