/Our wines/ Furmint Condition
20 19

Furmint is an underrated grape mostly grown in Hungary. For 500 years, some of the world's best sweet wines have been made in Tokaj. Our version is bone dry, smells like wet rock and quince. Racy acidity with a long finish.

About this wine

We get our grapes from the Hetszölö vineyard in the most southern part of Tokaj. 55 hectares of Furmint, Hárslevelű and Muscat Lunel grapes, all managed biodynamically on the Tokaj mountain.
Svenska Dagbladet's Anders Melldén: "Grapes from Tokaj made into wine at Wine Mechanics. Good stuff - with a touch of oak and rich fruit. Bring on the corn chicken!"
