    Winemaker's Notes:

    Furmint is a white varietal grown in Hungary and is the main ingredient of Tokaji Aszu. This yellowish-green grape displays a bouquet reminiscent of ripe apples in youth. After aging in wood, Furmint develops aromas of honey and walnuts. Rich in extract, it makes a heady, robust wine with pronounced acid. It is an early-budding, late-ripening variety that is particularly succeptible to botrytis. Often characterized by its high alcohol levels, Furmint's high acidity gives the wine longevity.

    The Royal Tokaji 2005 Furmint is a dry, white wine with apricot, ripe apple and hint of honey on the nose. Well-balanced with a nice mineral backbone, this clear light-colored wine displays flavors of apples and fruit with just a touch of lemon zest.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Floral and lasting, this is delicious, elegant furmint. It covers octaves of flavor, from bass notes of stones to searing citric sopranos, the middle range filled out with flowers, mint and stone fruit. Clear, clean and invigorating, it works as well as an aperitif as it does with a main dish of seared scallops.
