Dry Furmint from Tokaji's volcanic soils, in a modern style with the emphasis on melon and lemon fruit notes, with appetising freshness
Patricius Winery was created in the Tokaj Wine Region by the Kékessy family’s winemaking commitment that draws from the past and future. It is owned by Dezső Kékessy and his daughter Katinka Kékessy. Ancestors on both the paternal and maternal sides were renowned vineyard owners in Mátraalja and the Tokaj Wine Region from the 18th century. The 85-hectare estate, which has eight historic first-growth vineyards, is based in Bodrogkisfalud, in a press house renovated that once belonged to nobles and features in the Tokaj-Hegyalja Album printed in 1867. This building is connected to an organic-style, modern winery with gravity-flow system, that perfectly reflects the co-existence of traditions and the state-of-the-art modernity in the world heritage landscape.
Tasting Note: Dry, light white from the Furmint grape, which is better known for sweet wines, this has a fine, mild acidity, a scattering of walnuts and almonds and scents of mint and honey.
