Bought at BevMo for the "95pts or Higher BYOB" event at The Wine Chest in Pleasant Hill.
TRTWC: "This perfectly balanced 5 puttonyos wine is now widely available throughout the world. Royal Tokajis 1st growth Nyualszo vineyard is the benchmark for quality. As in all aszu wines, the three grape varieties are Furmint, Harslevelu and Muscat de Lunel. The characteristics are a vivid gold colour with honeyed apricot and orange peel flavours which are uplifted with dramatic acidity.
Red Label | USA
Blue Label | Rest of the World
Aszu classification was traditionally based on how many puttonyos of dried out, aszu, grapes were added to a barrel of dry wine. Now it is based on sugar levels. The sweeter, the richer; the richer, the rarer; the rarer, the more expensive.

Essencia, which often takes years to ferment to an incredible 3% alcohol, being the rarest wine of all.

3 Puttonyos : 60 - 90 grams sugar per litre
4 Puttonyos : 90 - 120
5 Puttonyos : 120 - 150
6 Puttonyos : 150 - 180
Aszu Essencia : 180 - 450
Essencia : 450 - 850"
