BALASSA Tokaji Furmint 'Boxer' 2021


Tokaji dry Furmint from the finest hand-picked grapes; this elegant volcanic white wine comes with a stylish label inspired by the winemaker's Boxer dog.

Medium body, with vibrant yet refined acidity and just a touch of oak. The fruity, intense nose shows herbal notes of delicate acacia and camomile with butterscotch notes. Friendly, attractive palate with a nuttiness and salty minerality, ending in a long finish of sweet spices and ripe fruits. A crisp and easy-going but seriously well-made wine, reflecting the complexity of the Tokaj terroir.

Food Pairing

A great accompaniment to seafood and risotto, or try it with a creamy potato gratin or crispy salami pasta. It goes well with smoked cheese like a traditional Parenica, or serve it alongside a charcuterie board.

It all starts in his vineyards with growing grapes of outstanding quality by applying a rigorous scientific approach to cultivation. He then creates each wine using artisanal wine-making methods, allowing the unique characteristics of the grape, the vineyard and the terroir to shine through in every drop.
