2015 Kikelet Furmint Dry Tokaj Hungary

SKU #1308380

From the importer's website: "This 100% Furmint is sourced from different plots in Tarcal and aged in oak barrels until April 2016. Notes of stone fruits, pear and spices on the nose. Medium-bodied and quite savory on the palate. Very easy to drink now with good aging potential. Delicious as an aperitif, it's also a accompaniment to smoked fish, fish soup, hard cheese and Asian cuisine."

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.
