Refreshing & Elegant
This complex yet refreshing, pronounced wine comes with instant notes of smoke, flint, floral and nutty nuances. These grapes are hand-picked, Furmint being the dominant varietal in this blend and are fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks and no oak present in the aging process. This allows a deep complex nose and palate, ranging from herbaceousness to citrusy grapefruit rind with a mellow finish of ripe melon. This 2017 vintage has a unique lower residual sugar than previous vintages and due to the very warm summer this brought something called Botrytis which is a celebrated organic fungus that came early on 2017 meaning exceptional hand-picked bunches of grapes picked to perfection to bring this vintage to success.
