THE ODDITY TOKAJI FURMINT DRY 2010

A glance at the figures would show that, with the exception of rainfall, this was an average vintage in all other respects. In fact this vintage was anything but. Rainfall was much higher than average, with rain on nearly 50% of days. Although average temperature was normal there was huge fluctuation from day to day. Spring started quite early in the middle of March when the temperature increased rapidly and budding was very good. June was quite cold and rainy, as it has been in a number of previous years and this affected the fruit set. July and August were very hot but still with significant rainfall. The heat sum by the end of August was as high as in 2008 however potential alcohol level in berries was 2-3 % lower. Rain continued during the harvest. Despite a good level of Botrytis we were not able to find aszú berries of sufficient quality and not a drop of aszú wine was produced.

In Other Vintage

The wine has lovely green colour with a yellow hint. Very clean on the nose with aromas of gooseberry.
A light wine but round and very fruity (gooseberries again) on the palate. Crisp, refreshing acidity makes for a clean finish.
