Notes/Facts: The aszú wines are vinified in the traditional gönci barrel (136 l) and szerednyei barrels (180-220 l), of which many of the wines spend a time between 4-6 years in oak sometimes even longer. It is this philosophy that we refer to Puklus winery as “traditional” as opposed to the “new” style of making aszú wines.
