Royal Tokaji’s first vintage was 2003 which was a Decanter Magazine Best Buy. It is an early budding, late ripening variety and is particularly susceptible to noble rot. Its high acidity gives the wine longevity. Furmint’s characteristics are clear, apricot and a hint of honey on the nose. The depth of fruit is balanced by its mineral backbone. Furmint is becoming one of the most demanded new exotic white grape varieties. Enjoy within 4 years of production.
