BALASSA Tokaji Furmint 2018 

   Combining the finest hand-picked grapes from four volcanic vineyards, this medium-bodied dry Furmint is a crisp wine reflecting the complexity of the Tokaj terroir. Refreshing, with a dynamic yet refined acidity and just a touch of oak. Fruity, intense nose shows some butterscotch and herbal notes of delicate acacia and camomile. Friendly, attractive palate with some nuttiness and salty minerality. Long finish of sweet spices and ripe fruits. A balanced, easy-going but seriously well-made wine. 

Food Pairing Recommendation

   A great accompaniment to poultry and seafood, or try with your Asian noodle bowl. Goes well with washed-rind cheeses such as Appenzeller, Linburger or Taleggio.

Serving temperature: 12-14°C
