OK, I cant be the only one to have their Furmint.
Delicious and lip-smacking similar to the gelatin rich chicken dumpling soup I paired this with.
I realized that this is what most regular folks enjoy about Chardonnay, aromatically mild, texturally rich and gulpable. It seems to hit an almosy umami type palate vibe. — 2 months ago
🍾 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.
