K&L Notes

This dry wine clearly shows the virtue of the famous terroir of Tokaj and the indigenous grape varietal Furmint. A crisp minerality and the fruitiness of the grapes determine its essential character. A nice body and a long taste on the palate give the wine a lasting quality. Very versatile food wine. Pair this Furmint with fish and poultry, turkey, and of course many vegetarian dishes.

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.
