100% Furmint (dry wine)

Furmint can excel at all levels of sweetness. This is thanks first of  all to a naturally high  level of  acidity,  which guarantees a tingling balance however ripe and luscious the grapes become. But Furmint also has a distinctive aromatic character that finds its maximum expression on the volcanic soils of this remote corner of north-east Hungary. Fermentation is in new wood barrels, which are carefully prepared, and takes between 8 and 12 days. The wine is aged in 136-litre small barrels, which are typical of the region.
