Not using the U-word but astonishingly rare, and one of the world's great whites. Szepsy remains a true master. 6 years and still tight even with a decanting.

What a tremendous gift to taste the legendary Szepsy wines with István Szepsy Sr., while visiting the Tokaj region last week. The wines are impeccable, as is the case with the Szent Tamás Furmint 2013. Pungent aromas of quince and orange, one might call this wine pretty, were it not for its serious underlying structure. Minerality, tightly wound, ricochets through intense, capacious layers, homing in on the finish—a final volcanic, terroir-driven, granitic burst that makes these wines so compelling and unique.
