Aged in Oak barrels for 9 months
Notes & Pairings
We are lucky to be offering this with 5 years of age on it. Furmint, like many other grapes sharing the same parentage (Riesling, Chardonnay etc…) need time to come together. 2015 was a warm and dry vintage. Not ideal for botrytis, but allowed for a lower disease pressure vintage and picking for ripeness. Acid is a given in Tokaj. It is immediately Tokaj – smoky, honeyed, spicy, aromatic without being perfumey, and weighty with a ton of brightness. Anyone into salty whites, high-toned Chenin, and “dry” Riesling will be really happy with this.
