Grape variety Furmint

Birtok Furmint contains grapes from three separate vineyards. Planted in 1998, the Hatalos plot (best plot of this domaine) is on a steep slope facing southeast, with clay and broken rocks dominant in the soil. The second plot, Meszes, is also on a steep hillside facing south, planted in the 1950’s, and covered primarily in clay. The final plot, Új-Bukler (3 acres and planted in the 1970’s), faces west on a gradual incline with clay and broken rocks dominant in the soil once again.

Fermented in stainless steel tanks with selected yeast. Yeast was carefully chosen for its neutral profile to allow for the grape varietal’s flavor qualities to dominate. Following fermentation, aged in steel tanks for 2-3 months then in 500L barrels for 10 months.

Very fresh, with pear and white fruits, green spices on the nose. Great freshness in the mouth too, with the ripe acids of 2017, pear and summer apple, with some tropical fruit reflect. Creamy and unctuous. A well-made domain furmint.
