Tokaj has been awarded a total of 19 medals at this year International Wine Challenge. Contrary to last year, sweet wines dominated the awards scene this time, with Patricius taking the Tokaji Sweet Trophy for their 2008 6 puttonyos and Tokaj's only other Gold for their "Katinka" Late Harvest of 2016. An unusual entry was a 1956 Aszú 5 puttonyos by the National Wine Treasury, one of the 150 re-bottlings for the 60th anniversary of Hungary's anti-communist revolution of 1956.
