Dry furmint from Dobogo, one of the most unexpected white wines you will taste. Founded in 1869, the Dobogó estate is in the centre of Tokaj and today belongs to Izabella Zwack, the youngest member of the Zwack family (the producers of Hungary’s famous liqueur, Unicum). The fuit comes from 35 year old vineyards in Betsek and Szent Tamás in Mád. Yields are extremely low, one kilo per plant and after hand hervesting, a wild yeast fermentation ensues. The ferment is in old barrels and subsequent battonage and ageing for one year takes place. This aromatic varietal produces a young, intense, highly mineral wine with a creamy texture. The taught acid structure balances the lively pear, lime, quince and salty, mineral character, which lingers on the elegant finish. A great Burgundy alternative.
