Grape variety Furmint

An elegant and very well-balanced expression of the Tokaj region’s leading grape variety, reflecting the unique qualities of Barta’s exceptional terroir on the steep and highly-prized Öreg Király (Old Kings Hill), a Historic Grand Cru.

100% Furmint, fermented and aged 4 months in large oak barrels. Residual sugar 7.1 grammes per litre, acidity 7.7 grammes per litre. Made by Vivien Ujvári.

Rounded, fruity nose, balanced by strong dry minerality. Juicy, intense, with lovely scintillating acidity. Long, with appetizingly dry finish. Excellent example of the new style. Delicious.” Ule Odsen

The 2017 Furmint is excellent: full bodied, supple, and fairly rich in flavor, with good balance, and a long finish, tasting of pear, toast, apple, vanilla, oak, and lime. A complex wine that will develop with further aging.” Ronn Wiegand MW, MS

Pale straw colour. Complex and layered nose offering ripe stone fruit, apricot, sweet citrus with floral and nutty notes. The palate has a very good bite and vital freshness, intense and lingering with pure stone fruit, hazelnut, a nutty spiciness, good volume and a rounded texture followed by a long lingering finish with a bright freshness all along. ” Andreas Larsson, tasted 02/19, blindtasted.com, 92 points
