Kardos Dry Furmint 2017, Hungary
Kardos' benchmark white wine. The fruit was picked from 20 year old vines in the south-facing Arany Sajgo vineyard in Tokaj. Grown on volcanic soils, they ripen with lots of fruit character and electric acidity. Kardos Furmint is aged for 3 months in tank before being bottled, resulting in a wine that's layered with flavours of zingy gooseberries, ripe pears and limes. The finish is crisp, dry and mouth-watering.
Pairs beautifully with: Seafood linguine, fresh green salads with cherry tomatoes, stuffed bell peppers or honey-lime chicken.
Cheese pairing: Grilled halloumi, Timsbury Ash Pyramid goat's cheese or Ewes' milk cheddar.
