2009 Hetszolo Furmint Sec (Previously $13)

SKU #1062184

Light in color, on the nose and palate this fascinating dry Furmint offers aromas of floral freshness, herbs and white fruit. This is a high-acid grape naturally, and the dry style really emphasizes briskness and minerality. Great with aged cheeses.

Very unique varietal from Hungary. Extremely dry and high alcohol.

Oak overpowered the subtle fruit and floral notes, making it difficult to tell what was going on in this wine.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
