About

This curious little wine is made from a few rows of Furmint grown organically (uncertified) on the Freeman vineyard in the Hilltops of NSW.

Furmint is traditionally made into a sweet Hungarian wine, however here, it takes on the form of a dry table wine. This is naturally fermented and untouched apart from a minimal amount of sulphur at bottling. It’s a tasty, engaging wine brimming with personality and a sense of intriuge.

Few examples of this variety exist in Australia, particularly in this minimalistic style. A great way to get acquainted with a lesser known variety and loads of fun at your next options night.

What It Tastes Like

Funky nose but it’s not in your face. Plays in the tropical fruit spectrum: pineapples, honey, nuts, shredded wheat and a kind of flor-like aroma but more restrained. A tiny light spritz on opening counterbalanced by some chewy phenolics. Cool wine. A surprise packet and a unique talking point.
