A fruit-driven, youthful face of Furmint - early harvest has resulted in lower alcohol levels and more intense fruitiness. Pears and camomile flower on the nose; the palate shows great minerality and oaky notes. Rich, long finish. An elegant, vertical wine rounded out by a touch of residual sugar.
Furmint is a great match for Asian dishes - try with a sushi platter or a sweet-and-sour recipe. Alternatively, serve with some creamy pasta or risotto, or chicken-based dishes.

Tokaj Nobilis Winery, Tokaj - Protected Designation of Origin (PDO)
The philosophy of Sarolta Bárdos, owner-winemaker at Tokaj Nobilis, is that good wine begins in the vineyard, as the quality of the grapes will have a great influence on the quality of the end product. With extremely low yields, they harvest super-concentrated fruit with high sugar content. The vinification process is carried out in the most natural and gentle way possible so as to preserve everything the grapes have to offer. Minimal intervention and now certified organic production ensure pristine quality. The Nobilis portfolio includes estate wines, vineyard selections, a sparkling wine and late harvest as well as Aszú sweet wines.

The beguiling flowery taste of the lime honey combines perfectly with the nutty flavour of the sunflower oil and the slight-acidity of the mustard, all given a mouth-watering twist by the addition of sweet paprika smoked on aromatic beech wood, as well as a bit of hot paprika for that irresistible kick.
