KREINBACHER Somlói Furmint Selection 2017

The flagship white wine of the Kreinbacher estate made from selected grapes, this award-winning white wine from Somló is proof that Furmint can shine in a variety of volcanic terroir.

A distinct cool-climate character in the nose, with aromas of green apple, pear and an attractive florality. Refined and elegant body with vibrant acidity and volcanic minerality, with the sip ending in a pleasantly smooth, long finish.
