Grand Cru

This elegant Furmint comes from the best terroir in Eger, the Nagy Eged hill. We are lucky to call part of this site our own and from it we produce only our most unique and rare wines. It was fermented and aged in 225 and 500 liter barrels on lees for 8 months. It is a complex, golden colored wine, exhibiting pear and apricot flavors with flinty overtones. It starts with a discreet and elegant aroma and opens into flavors of vanilla, peach and toasted seeds, ending with a pleasant and long finish.

Tasting Notes
