2018 Jakab Padi-Hegy Furmint

Tokaj, Hungary

Minerally, racy Furmint from a lo-fi, organic producer in Tokaj, Hungary.



About The Wine

The "Padi-hegy" vineyard is the Jakab winery's original plot of vines, bought by winemaker Zoltan Jakab's father in 2006. Sitting on south-facing stony and volcanic slopes, this vineyard produces steely wines with intense minerality and structure.

Jakab employs a light tough in both the winery and vineyard, using as few additions as possible. The grapes go through a spontaneous fermentation in a mix of old and neutral French, Hungarian, and Austrian oak barrels, ageing for around 11 months. A small dose of sulphur is added just before bottling.

About Jakab

Zoltán Jakab began the Jakab winery in 2007 after falling in love with winemaking as a child watching his grandfather tend a small patch of vines and make wine for the family. A former medical doctor, he left the profession when his father bought a plot of vines in the Padi-hegy vineyard of Tokaj, Hungary.

A chance encounter with fellow natural winemaker Attila Homonna led the two to build the Jakab winery together, gradually acquiring more vines and producing more land year by year.

Today the pair tend to a few different vineyards across Tokaj, always farming organically and working with as few additions in the winery as possible.

Additional Info

From The Producer

Padi-hegy is the estate's original vineyard, purchased in 2006. It faces south, rocky and stony with soils of rhyolite tuff, geyserite and limnoquarzite with heavy clay content. It doesn’t really lend itself to sweet wines, and is ideally suited to lean, mineral dry wines. This is 100% Furmint spontaneously fermented and aged in oak barrels. Jakab uses a mix of Stockinger barrels, Hungarian oak and wood from France’s Atelier cooperage.

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
