The Tokaj legend has grown and grown in its four hundred years of history; but it was not until 1630, when the greatness of the Oremus vineyard was first spoken of. Today, it is the one with greatest universal acclaim.
At harvest several rounds are done, but only those bunches containing at least 50 % of botrytised berries are picked. After destemming, the berries are macerated for 4-12 hours and later pressed, giving the noble rot a leading role. Late Harvest is an interesting coupage of different grape varieties producing a well-balanced wine. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks for 20-30 days. The wine then ages in Hungarian oak barrels (136-litre "Gönc" and 220-litre "Szerednye") for three months and is refined in bottle for a 10-month ageing period.
Late Harvest is a harmonious, fresh, silky wine. It is versatile when drunk, providing a new array of possibilities in each sip.
