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.

The bunches are gently pressed and fermentation takes place 50% in new Hungarian oak barrels and 50% in stainless steel tanks. 70% of the wine is aged in oak barrels for 3 months stirring up the lees every week  ("batonnage") and for another 3 months.
