Method & Production
The nose is defined by minerality, citrus, gooseberry, and peach aromas. On the palate, it is rich, full-bodied, and ripe. Fruit flavors of bruised apple, pear, and citrus and joined by very well-integrated oak flavor. Very well-balanced and harmonious. An example of just how great Furmint can be! It has huge potential for age also.
A perfect choice for sushi, Caesar salad, and grilled vegetables.
