"Tokaj, the wine of kings and king of wines" is how Louis XIV described it when he tasted it and the legend of the Tokaj has steadily grown over its more than four hundred years history. Yet it would not be until 1630 when the greatness of the Oremus vineyard was first mentioned and today it enjoys the highest universal recognition.
Tasting Notes: 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 the 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- liter "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 a bottle for a 15-month aging period. Late Harvest is a harmonious, fresh, silky wine. It is very versatile, providing a new experience in each sip.
