DRINK GOOD SCHIST
2015 Somlói Vándor, Nagy-Somlói Furmint
Wine Name: Furmint, pronouced “foo r-mint.” This one you might have heard of! It is the backbone of Hungary’s most famous wine, Tokaji Aszu!
Color also straw yellow. Classic pithy stone fruit, volcanic nose and a touch of saline minerality. Wow! Starts off with thick flavors of yellow/orange fruits with a touch of fresh apricots. Incredible concentration. Bone dry, yet packed with delicious compressed fruit flavors. Remarkable structure, great length and purity. This is a wine that will continue to develop for years to come.
Pairing: Great with dishes using Thai basil or citrus based dishes.
Alcoholic fermentation done in stainless steel. Elevage: half of the wine is aged in 100% new oak, and then blended. The new oak is heavy toast. It’s hard to believe the vines are only 15 years old!
