2017 Disznoko Dry Furmint

Tokaj, Hungary

A fascinating look at a dry Furmint out of Tokaj. Textural, savoury and crackling with energy. A unique drinking experience on offer here.



About The Wine

The Tokaj region may be famous for its sweet wines, however this excellent table wine proves that dry wines can excel in the region, too.

This is made from Furmint (and a splash of Hárslevelű - anoth local Hungarian variety) that was picked at optimum ripeness, just before botrytis settled in, and fermented to dry.

It's unusual to see these sorts of wines in Australia, but we'd love to see more because this is a serious surprise packet. Think something like Chablis-meets-earthy-Riesling and you're heading in the right direction. It has power and intensity and a whip crack of salty/saline acidity through the finish. It's brilliant, exciting drinking.

If Chardonnay just isn't doing it for you at the moment, this is a great alternative for your medium-full bodied textural white option.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?
