Dobogo Furmint 2013

£14.99

TASTING NOTE

Medium gold in colour. This aromatic varietal produces a young, intense, highly mineral wine with a creamy texture.  The taught acid structure balances the lively pear, lime and quince and salty, mineral character, which lingers on the elegant finish.

Grapes were grown in the 35 year old vineyards of Betsek and Szent Tamás in Mád. Both vineyards are planted with three of the permitted Tokaj grape varieties - 60% Furmint, 30% Harslevelú and 10% Muscat Lunel, although for this wine, only Furmint was used. Yields were restricted using short spur pruning which ensured that the vines did not yield more than one kilogram of fruit per vine. Soils in this area are volcanic.

The grapes were harvested by hand. Fermentation took place using natual yeasts in three and four year old Hungarian oak barrels of 300-500 litre capactiy. After undergoing battonage, or stirring of the lees, for a period of six months it was aged for one year before bottling.
