The term "Aszu", literally translated as "dry", today is associated with a type of wine made from botrytised grapes zaizyumlennogo, ie, slightly dried grapes, processed noble botrytis. These berries are picked by hand in special baskets, referred to as "Puttonosh." Baskets are the unit of measurement of the amount collected berries, the average basket capacity of 30 kilograms slightly dried berries. If the production of sweet wine " Aszu 6 puttonyos "136 liters of dry wine is added 6 baskets" Aszu ", then for the production of" Aszuesszencia "- 2-3 over six baskets. It turns out even more sweet and full-bodied wine. Since graduation in Hungarian law appellation stops at "6 puttonyos", this wine can not be called, for example, "Aszu 8 puttonyos". Therefore Hungarian winemakers decided to call this wine "Aszuesszencia", as approaching in terms of sweetness and concentration to the legendary "Esszencia".
The rest of the production technology "Aszuesszencia" is similar to "Aszu": berries develop in huge vats and choke to a paste, then this mass is filled with dry wine, are at the stage of fermentation, and left for 24-48 hours with constant stirring. Then the wine is decanted into 220-liter oak barrels, where fermentation is completed and will be maintained wine. The barrels are stored in a cool place tightly closed, so they slow fermentation process continues for two years. After bottling, the wine is aged for about a year.
