Notes & Pairings

Furmint has the triple threat of balancing incredibly high acidity, the weight of residual sugar, and being highly susceptible to Botrytis. The mixture of clay and volcanic soils also imparts a chalk-like texture coupled with dried fruit, honey, spice and a mineral backbone. Fermented slowly with native yeasts at uncontrolled temperatures, it’s remarkable how true to place it remains. Judit and Jószef prepared roasted goat on our last visit and the Csontos came alive when paired with the strong gamey flavors of the meat and the sweetness of the caramelized vegetables.
