In Other Vintage

An excellent vintage for dry wines, 2017 was warm and early, provided ripe and full-flavoured Furmint grapes with balancing acidity. Whole bunches were pressed and then fermented partly in stainless steel tanks, partly in barrels (15% new oak). After fermentation both lots remained in their vessels on fine lees, for further maturation to add subtle overtones and a new dimension.
Delicious as an aperitif, with seafood, white meats or spicy food.
Serve cool.
