2019 Royal Tokaj, Szt. Tamás Furmint MagnumUdsolgt
SZENT TAMÁS – 1ST GROWTH TOKAJI DRY FURMINT 2019
Szt. Tamás is a celebrated First Growth vineyard sloping southwest and overlooking the Royal Tokaji winery in Mád. The soil is rich, red clay interspersed with indigo and purple volcanic rocks on and below the surface.
Whole bunches of Furmint grapes were pressed and fermented in 300 litre Zemplén oak barrels. After fermentation the wine was matured for six months in oak.
We are delighted with the result - our Szt. Tamás Furmint is a powerful wine, typically well-structured and concentrated, elegance and grace combining with a firm backbone. Crisp acidity balances the ripe fruit and the barrel maturation adds discreet notes of spice. Long and intense, the wine accurately reflects its unique climate and soil.
Serve at a cool temperature with Asian food, white meats, fish and pasta dishes.
