Hungarian to English translations [PRO]
Wine / Oenology / Viticulture / Sugar level in sweet Tokay wine
Hungarian term or phrase: puttonyos
Is there an English equivalent for this? This is referring to the number of vintage baskets of noble rot-affected grapes added to barrels of dry wine. This term is used to denote sugar level in sweet dessert wine.

Thank you in advance.

agree  xxxdenny: However, in many cases the word puttonyos is used in the English text (as it should be if it is part of the wine's name); in many cases this is done without any explanation.
