“The legendary ‘Tokaj Eszencia’ a precious and mysteriously sweet wine that has been credited with semi magical properties (including that of being an elixir of life), is made from the juice that flows from the aszu grapes through the pressure of their own weight. The production of Tokaj is complex and lengthy and any visitor to the strange cellars underground in the region will be astounded by the thick blanket of mould that covers the walls and must obviously have a marked effect on the wines that mature many years in the small casks known as gonci.? – (www.tokaj.com)
