This elegant Furmint comes from the best terroir in Eger, the Nagy Eged hill. A complex wine, our dry Furmint exhibits pear and apricot flavors with a limestone and flint overtone, it then ends with a nice long and clean finish. It is lovely now and will continue to get better with age for many more years to come.
