Henye Peszgő Méthode Traditionnelle Brut Tokaji Furmint Harslevelu 2015

🍾 This Hungarian 🇭🇺 sparkling wine is a gem, not to mention it’s absolutely delicious.  👏👏👏 We’ve had it once before and had to return to Thomas Liquors to pick up more. 💕💕

📝 It is comprised of 70% Furmint and 30% Hárslevelu, two widely-planted indigenous varieties in Hungary, and was made using the traditional method, i.e., the same method used in Champagne, which notably involves a second fermentation in the bottle followed by twelve months aging “sur lie,” riddling, and disgorgement.  🤓

It comes from the Henye vineyard in the Tokaj region of Hungary, near the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains. 🏔

Tokaji wines are best known for being lusciously sweet and presented in 50CL bottles, but here is an excellent example of dry, brut sparking Tokaji wine that has vibrant acidity and ripe orchard fruit notes, such as desiccated, yellow apple, pear, and apricot; also citrus blossom and lavender notes along with a rich creaminess and toasty, brioche, yeasty elements, evidence of the sur-lie aging. 👍👍👍

We’ve delightfully paired this wine with homemade Maryland-style crab cakes 🦀 over a bed of arugula salad tossed with champagne vinaigrette.

Sec Tokaji Furmint 2012

Fun surprise in the cellar stash, at a great point. Very much has all that cheniny lanoliness, bitter waxy lemony smoke. Persistent and juicy finish. Fennel notes really come through with 2hrs air. Gotta try this with a fennel salad, Zuni chicken or fish en papillote — 2 months ago
