It was an outstanding vintage. 2018 was particularly warm resulting ripe, complex wines with excellent flavour concentration. The natural acidity of the Furmint grape and the supporting volcanic terroir create the strong acid back bone that made this wine so well balanced.
It is an extremely elegant wine showing ripe-bruised apple, pear and quince notes accompanied with some gentle and well-integrated toasted biscuit and hazel from the Hungarian oak. A touch of flinty and smoky minerality can also be recognised which is one of the benchmarks of the wines coming from the north-eastern part of Tokaj.
This wine is a great match for slow-roasted pork belly, but it also goes well with grilled poultry and any slowly cooked or baked white meat.
