Tasting Notes

Wines from Hungary does not need to feel foreign, exotic, or unfamiliar. This Furmint, for example, features fresh pears and quaffable tropical fruits, all under a welcoming floral nose. A lush texture struck with an herbal finish leaves you feeling lip-smacking good. Pair with rich fish, creamy chicken dishes, lightly spiced recipes, and maturing goat cheese. This wine comes from 30-year-old Furmint vines growing on a mix of volcanic soils.

Staff Pick Notes

No wonder Furmint makes the legendary sweet wines of Hungary. Even in a dry wine like this, the flavor profile offers suggestions of what later harvesting and/or botrytis can do. The tart, citrusy flavors and solid acidity still conjure the tiniest hint of sweetness—but don’t be alarmed. This juice is dangerously delicious! It disappeared too fast if you ask me. Drinking this wine is like attending a throwback party with summery, childhood vibes. Three things immediately came to mind when I tasted this: yellow sprees, packets of smarties, and a cool glass of lemonade, watered down by melted ice on a hot day. I feel like I should be hanging out by the snack bar at the public pool all of a sudden. Can someone queue DJ Jazzy Jeff and the Fresh Prince now?
