TOKAJICUM Tokaji Furmint 'Vizsla' 2018

Tokaji Furmint is the flagship dry wine of the region. This is an easy-drinking and joyous vintage, reflected by the stylish label which pays homage to one of Hungary's most loved dog breeds, the Hungarian Vizsla.

A medium-bodied and approachable Furmint, it showcases the lighter side of this quintessential Tokaj variety. The wine was partially tank-fermented to retain the grapes' delightful fruitiness, followed by a period of barrel ageing for added depth and character. An appealing nose of white-fleshed fruit and honeyed notes is followed by a smooth, creamy palate dominated by peach and pear, elegantly complemented by the buttery, toasty flavours from barrel ageing. Good structure and firm acidity from the Furmint variety, ending in a mineral finish.


Food Pairing

Serve with roast, poultry, fish, sushi or pasta. Pair it with smoked cheese like a traditional Parenica or try it alongside charcuterie.

Serving temperature: 10°C
