2013 The Royal Tokaji Wine Company "The Oddity" Furmint (Previously $16)

SKU #1255625 91 points Wine & Spirits

 The cuvée formally known simply as “Dry Furmint,” The Oddity is especially firm and savory in 2013. It feels tightly packed and withheld, the flavors wrapped in stony layers of minerality; the energy it gives off, a rumble of furmint acidity and volcanic stone, suggests there’s lots more to come. Give it another year and decant for pork trotters.  (12/2014)

Wine Spectator

 Petrol, apple and floral notes combine in a positive way in this elegant, vibrant white, which firms up on the finish. (BS, Web-2015)

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.
