XIII. Bayer Wine Competition 2016 - Silver medal
Bright lemon yellow. The nose is mainly characterised by stone fruits, but it also shows the toasty aromas of oak aging as well. This substantial and complex wine reveals notes of granny apples and peaches, complemented by vanilla and Christmas spices. A distinct minerality and mouth-watering acidity combine to make this single vineyard Furmint a really special offering, a big and bold wine approaching full maturity, with a lingering finish.
Food Pairing Recommendation
This Furmint is best served with slow cooked stews and ragouts.
