About This Wine

ISTVÁN SZEPSY IS ONE OF THE MOST RESPECTED winemakers in Tokaj, a man who produced wine throughout the Communist era both in a cooperative and in his own artisan winery. He was a founding member of Royal Tokaji (also honored as a Top 100 Winery this year), and went on to launch Királyudvar with Anthony Hwang of the Loire' Domaine Huet. Wine and Spirits It was at Királyudvar where he and winemaker Zoltán Demeter began an ambitious experiment with dry furmint. At the time, the local dry wines were considered merely byproduct, what you did with what didn't go to Tokaji Aszú. The wines were high in alcohol and rough in texture, and tended to oxidize quickly - a factor Szepsy and Demeter eventually figured out was due to the botrytis that made its way into the mix. Now farming his own vineyards with an eye toward making dry wines, picking early and culling obsessively, Szepsy has proven that dry Furmint is worth making in its own right.

This wine has very fine aromas of lemon, stonefruit and herbs . Powerful and fruit driven on the palate, almost Viognier like in texture, but then bright acidity and mineral notes. Finishes dry and vibrant, with a stony mineral quality.
