Tokaji Furmint created from the finest hand-picked grapes of four volcanic vineyards; this crisp white wine reflects the complexity of the Tokaj terroir.
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 refreshing and easy-going but seriously well-made wine.
