The fruit-driven, youthful face of Furmint, rich and long
The philosophy of Sarolta Bárdos, owner-winemaker at Tokaj Nobilis, is that good wine begins in the vineyard, as the quality of the grapes will have a great influence on the quality of the end product. With extremely low yields, they harvest super-concentrated fruit with high sugar content. The vinification process is carried out in the most natural and gentle way possible so as to preserve everything the grapes have to offer. Minimal intervention and now certified organic production ensure pristine quality. The Nobilis portfolio includes estate wines, vineyard selections, a sparkling wine and late harvest as well as Aszú sweet wines.
Tasting Note: A fruit-driven, youthful face of Furmint - early harvest has resulted in lower alcohol levels and more intense fruitiness. Pears and camomile flower on the nose; the palate shows great minerality and oaky notes. Rich, long finish. An elegant, vertical wine rounded out by a touch of residual sugar.
