This is one intense white. Nose has a wallop of sweet minerality along with pear/Golden Delicious apple fruit. The flavor concentration in the mouth is remarkable. Minerals, fruit, a lily-like floral note. Long finish. Decent acids. Eye-opening for me about what dry Furmint can achieve!

Excellent vintage. Quite a bit more complex than 2014. Outstanding with sushi. 🍣

Medium gold color, with oatmeal, bruised apple, saffron, and wooly nose nose is a dead ringer for rustic Chenin from Loire. Less acidity than chenin.

Like a Savannieres on steroids. Absolutely pungent minerality with some oxidation present, funkified apricot and bruised apples lying on the ground notes, and, to borrow a Lyle Fass term, armpit. A bit more civilized in the mouth. Very interesting.

Drinks like a nice white Burgundy to me. Bright, electric acid balances the rich, buttery goodness. Citrus and jalepeno, some stone fruit. 🎉🍾 #OBX2018

One of the true gems from the Rare Wine Company portfolio. The Vouvray comparisons still hold true- spice, lanolin, beeswax, chamomile, baked apple and shimmering minerality. Leesy and somewhat rounded mid palate, multi-layered texture. Great tension between richness and tight acidity. The incredible QPR of this wine is very tough to beat.
