- Evolucio Furmint 2013 Product #28769 (In Stock)
It's easy to understand why The Washington Post selected this as one of "4 Bargain Bottles for Summer Sipping." After all, Wine Spectator gave the last vintage a very nice 89 point rating for it's "Aromatic, showing floral, peach, grapefruit and white pepper notes." Its a fresh and vibrant trip off the beaten path - and a very nice value, too!
"Furmint is a high-acid white grape variety native to Hungary. In its dry versions, as here, it is citrusy and refreshing, with an exotic-fruit quality that sings with lighter seafood dishes or appetizers. Stock up on this one, and test its versatility." ** Washington Post
- Disznoko Tokaji Aszu 5 Puttonyos 2007 (500ml) Product #28360 (In Stock)
A classic Tokaji; medium-sweet.
The 2007 Tokaji Aszu 5-Puttonyos is a blend of 75% Furmint, 15% Zeta and 10% Harslevelu (the first and last forming the base wine.) The berries were added to both the fermenting must but mostly finished wine, depending on the level of botrytis, then aged in barrel for 30 months. It has a very pure and clean nose, perhaps one of the most Sauternes-like I have come across, with yellow plum and quince aromas. The palate is clean and fresh on the entry with effervescent Satsuma, apricot and quince notes pricked with just the right amount of acidity (7.2 grams per liter, in case you were wondering.) This very feminine, balletic Tokaji – a little ingenue – is a perfect introduction to the delights of aszu wine. Drink now-2035+. Wine Advocate 91 points
"Spicy aromas lead to candied citrus and clove flavors in this elegant dessert white. Moderately sweet, with bright acidity and fine length. Drink now through 2022."Wine Spectator 91 points
