Character: Embodying the legacy of Tokaj's esteemed sweet wines, this 3 puttonyos Aszú wine strikes a delicate balance reminiscent of both a 5 puttonyos Aszú and the Prelude wines. Offering a delightful combination of sweetness and acidity, this vintage showcases a nuanced character that is sure to enchant the senses. Upon tasting, one can expect a medley of flavors including honeyed apricot, tropical fruits, and a touch of citrus zest, harmonizing into a well-rounded palate experience. The wine's sweetness, approached with subtlety, is enhanced by a vibrant acidity that lends a crisp and refreshing finish. With a refined complexity that falls between the luxurious depth of a 5 puttonyos Aszú and the youthful exuberance of the Prelude wines, this 3 puttonyos Aszú is a versatile choice that bridges the gap between tradition and innovation, making it a captivating addition to any wine lover's collection.
