Royal Tokaji Furmint Hungary 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Furmint is a white varietal grown in Hungary and is the main ingredient of Tokaji Asz. 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 and is particularly susceptible to botrytis. Often characterized by its high alcohol levels, Furmints high acidity gives the wine longevity. The Royal Tokaji Furmint is a dry, white wine with apricot, ripe apple and a 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.
