2016 Royal Tokaj, Nyulaszó FurmintUdsolgt
NYULÁSZÓ – 1ST GROWTH TOKAJI FURMINT DRY 2016
Nyulászó is one of the most appreciated vineyard hills in its commune. Soil: rich clay.
Our Nyulászó 2016 is an elegant wine with volcanic structure on the palate and good fruit complemented by oaky and vanilla notes. Well integrated acidity with fresh fruit flavours and a long mineral finish. A real terroir wine.
In 2016 the overall quality is very high with good ripeness and acidity and volumes in line with long-term averages. Furmint grapes were harvested at the end of September. Whole bunches were pressed and fermented in Zemplén oak barrels. After fermentation we matured the wine for six months in 300 litre and 500 litre barrels. The final blend has a proportion of 20% new oak.
A superb companion to barbecued white meats, even some more serious veal and pork dishes. Perfectly matched with traditional Hungarian meat cuisine. Serving temperature at 11 – 13 °C.
