Notes & Pairings

We are very happy to have the 2017 vintage of this 100% Furmint, sourced from the best exposed areas of the estate. As Zoltán says, “People have been growing grapes on Somló for a thousand years. Therefore, I’m not taking an enormous risk in doing the same thing.” Zoltán picks later than anyone else we work with on the hill, but the sweet/salty acidity they are able to keep in balance is astonishing.
