It will take an individual picker about two days to harvest the 20-25 kilos required to fill a single puttony.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIn November and December, 3, 4 or 5 (occasionally 6) puttony of Aszú-paste is added to one Gönci cask (136 litres) of good quality new dry wine, mixed and soaked for 24-48 hours, in order to extract the natural sugar content and flavours. The wine is then drawn off to ferment for a second time. The fermentation takes time because of the high sugar content and the low temperature of the cellars.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eCellars (many of which date from the 13th Century) are crucial to the maturation of Aszú wine. Long aisles providing a constant temperature, ideal humidity and good draught free ventilation.
