Bomboly Száraz Furmint 2017

Bomboly Dülö Dry Furmint 2017
Light golden in colour and quite expressive on the nose with intense (over)ripe lemons with floral notes and slightly smoky aromas with a whiff of orange peel and lanolin.
Bright & lively citrus acidity softened with ripe fruit (lemons again) a pinch of turmeric and a bit of (old) large barrel aging. Finishes off with a tart, slightly tannic edge.
This has depth & complexity and also is quite polished & elegant. A delicious, superb wine.

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.

Bonsai Öregtőkés Kadarka 2017

Alder Yarrow
9.4

I happen to think that Kadarka, a Hungarian grape that few have heard of, is one of the most interesting wine grapes around. Similar to Trousseau or Poulssard in weight and finesse, it’s totally delicious. This one is made from gnarled, 100-year-old vines (hence the name) whose delicate fruit is fermented and aged in steel. Aromas of dried flowers and red currant give way to dried herbs, strawberry and cherry flavors with notes of dried fennel seed in the finish. Juicy and bright and a mere 13% alcohol. — 13 days ago
