    TOKAJI ASZU HUNGARIAN WINE

    The secret of Tokay wine is the microclimate which causes autumnal mists in the morning which are driven away later in the day by the heat of the sun. These are ideal environmental conditions for Botiytis cinerea (the noble rot) which eviscerates almost all the moisture from the grapes, leaving a very high concentration of sugars, aromatic, and flavour substances in the grapes.
