The Oddbins Take

Tokaji Aszú falls under a ranking system labelled as Puttonyos, the higher the Puttonyos the higher the percentage of botrytized grapes used; making the wine richer and sweeter. This wine is the top dog, 6 Puttonyos. In fact, the only more premium category of Tokaji is called 'Eszencia,' it's so sweet that typically, it's served with a spoon and is pretty much reserved for the Hungarian Royal Family, when they're on their deathbed, believing the wine will revive them. You don't have to serve this wine with a spoon and we doubt it will prevent death but with its beautiful full-body, succulent flavours of apricot, marmalade, honey, white blossom and enlivening acidity, you might forget about mortality altogether.
