Furmint on Snooth

  • Al, ordering from Limerick Lane is a no-brainer.  The worst LL wine I have ... the reds.  I bought the Furmint, last year, and while it was good, I'd just as soon allocate the $ to red wine this time around.  Translation:  the white wine expert in this house was not impressed with it to the point that she would ask for it.  It's funny.  That sa...

  • Searching for a new wine grape to spice things up this spring? We’ve got ... you already met? Her name is Furmint, and she hails from Hungary. You may remember Furmint from your last glass of Tokaji, Hungary’s famed sweet wine. As you would suspect, the grape is late-ripening and prone to botrytis. Thus her dry manifestations are all the more ... Read More

  • Evolucio Furmint 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Lovely - crisp, vibrant, bracing. Had this beginning lunch. Medium mouthfeel and weight, but perfect as a starter. Did not have with food, but suspect this one would work wonderfully with food, just as it does alone. For the price or much higher, an incredible value. Read More

  • Just reading about this producer, obviously a question for GregT, and maybe ... ... producer.The 2012 Dry Furmint also gets good marks on CT thus far and Rare Wine also stocks a few of their offerings, another good sign!Also bought my first Hungarian wines today from Blue Danube, in what feels like much too long (probably 2 years).2008 Attila...

  • I'm with GregT that any sweet wine needs to have some zip.  Botrytis ... starts with good acid, like furmint, chenin blanc, and the like.  I like grenache, although I usually like higher acids, albeit in my whites a bit more than my reds; grenache just isn't one of those high acid grapes, so I don't know if I would ever jump on it as a dessert...

  • On and off with differing frequency mention is made on these boards of garnacha as a choice for certain palates, and in certain contexts. Most of the mention here is pretty generic, and doesn't get down to any level of detail.Would like to suggest we take up the subject of wines from this grape with better focus. Where is good, who makes the goo... Read More

  • Dessert wines are often saved for the winter holidays when we tend to linger at ... from three grape varieties: Furmint, Hárslevel and Muscat de Lunel. The winemaking process itself has changed little over the centuries. The grapes shriveled by botrytis (aszú) are hand harvested individually and crushed into a thick, syrupy paste. This paste is...

    Lovely little white wine had with lunch at Marcello's. Dry, crisp, and bright. Just under-ripe peach and apricot, with bits of green apple, citrus, and herbs. At this price point...crazy Read More

  • Chateau Megyer Furmint Tokaji 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Very neutral on the nose. I detect practically nothing. Light on the tonguesome stone fruit flavors but almost undetectable. Some fruit returns at the back of the palate. In between there is almost a saline taste. Very light bodied. If it had a bit more acid, I would, at least, call it refreshing. Not an expensive wine. So, there is no... Read More
