Gizella Furmint 2016, Hungary
Elegant and silky-smooth white wine with ripe pear and toasted apple notes.
There's only a few thousand bottles of this limited edition estate Furmint made each year. It showcases the delicious acidity and ripe orchard fruits that are so classic of the variety Furmint. As a twist, there's also a dollop of the grape variety Harslevelu, another local Tokaj grape, that adds more structure, an oily texture, floral aromas and a hint of honey. Both these grapes have fabulous affinity to oak, so when Gizella vinifies 80% of the blend in barrel, you end up with a toasty, silky-smooth white wine that's glorious to drink.
Pairs beautifully with: Lightly spiced dishes, pasta bake, risotto and grilled white meats.
Cheese pairing: Applewood cheddar, Keltic Gold or Balaton cheese for the authentic touch!
