Still fresh but starting to get a little mature flavour pushing through, including some sneaky petrol aromas as well! Here we have a beautiful, bone-dry, Furmint with great character. It is a shimmering pale yellow/green with a nose of green apple and plenty of vegetal undertones. In the mouth there is an immediate, refreshing, hit of kiwi and apple with an underlying creaminess that is sustained through the long finish, where fruit flavours become almost like sherbet and the acidity sets the mouth watering and begging for more.  This is a delightful wine.

More about

Although most people will associate Furmint with the wonderful sweet wines of Hungary, it would be a mistake to think that was all there was to this grape.

 Here we have a beautiful, bone-dry, Furmint with great character. It is a shimmering pale yellow/green with a nose of green apple and plenty of vegetal undertones. In the mouth there is an immediate, refreshing, hit of kiwi and apple with an underlying creaminess that is sustained through the long finish, where fruit flavours become almost like sherbet and the acidity sets the mouth watering and begging for more.

 This is a delightful wine.

Flo says of the 2012 (July 2018): This wine has mellowed with time, still has notes of kiwi and apple but ageing has calmed the acidity. 

Ben says of the 2011 (October 2018): Absolutely lovely! Still fresh but starting to get a little mature flavour pushing through, including some sneaky petrol aromas as well!
