This dry Furmint comes from Nagy-Eged hill as a special gift from a very good year. It was fermented and aged in 225 liter and 500 liter barrels on its lees for 8 months. The colour of the wine is glit and its initial aroma is discrete and elegant. A complex wine, it exhibits pear and apricot flavors, followed by limestone and flint overtones. This wine is smooth and soft, and when it opens its shows flavors of  vanilla, peach, and toasted seeds, followed by a nice long and clean finish. It is lovely now and will age very nicely in the bottle for years to come.

This great vintage scored a 90 point gold medal from the Beverage Tasting Institutes World Wine Championships and a 90 point rating from the Wine Enthusiast.
