The "Szent Tamás" is one of the six historic grand cru of Mád, the mythical terroir of the Tokaj region. This is a special wine from one of Tokaj’s most coveted vineyards. The Szent Tamás slope is the home of some of the most outstanding white wines made in Tokaj, and Balassa’s Szent Tamás Furmint is definitely among them. A blast of typical tropical Furmint notes, layers and layers of minerality, a wide and smooth body and a long-lasting finish. Selected grapes from 40-60-year-old vines, precise and careful winemaking, small quantities. Already drinking wonderfully now, but can age for many years.

Tokaji Furmints are oftentimes dynamic and mineral, while others are elegant and fruity. Only very special wines combine both, and this this vineyard selection Furmint, made from hand-picked grapes, is just such a vintage. Intense aromas of citrus, stone and peach explode in the glass, followed by a juicy palate with refined acidity and considerable oak in the background. Creamy, smooth and perfectly round, this is a well-balanced vintage for true wine lovers and connoisseurs.

It is the perfect drink accompaniment to poultry and seafood dishes. Goes very well with washed-rind cheese like Appenzeller, Linburger or Taleggio.

IWSC 2021 : Gold 95 points

"A complete wine that balances medium-dry ripe tropical fruits: apple, pears and lemon create a lovely minerality and a vibrant acidity. Beautifully textured with some honeyed, nutty and minty herbal notes adding to the complex, long finish."
