Barta Furmint online tasting with Oz Clarke
Maintaining the viewers’ attention through an online tasting is a challenge. Not if the speaker is the super entertaining Oz Clarke. The British wine guy started his career as an actor, he had played in several theatre plays and movies by the time he got close to wine. Being talented in wine tasting as well, he combined his wine knowledge with his talent for entertaining – and it worked. According to a survey carried on in 2008, Oz Clarke was the most recognised wine critic in the UK. The IWC Wine Personality of the Year (2009) and award winner writer released his first wine app a decade ago.
Barta Cellar in Tokaj is a comet. We have reported about their acknowledgments countless times, the last one was a Decanter Platinum award, and for sure it is not the last one this year. Tamlyn Currin, wine writer on JancisRobinson.com described Barta Öreg Király Furmint as OMG!
This Friday Oz Clarke will taste 3 different wines made of Furmint:
– Egy kis Furmint 2019 (which is listed in Decanter October issue as one of the best weekday wines),
– Öreg Király Dűlő Furmint 2015 (the one Tamlyn Currin was fascinated by) and
– Öreg Király Szamorodni 2013. Oz will taste together with Rebecca Palmer wine buyer, co-manager of Corney&Barrow, while the chief winemaker of Barta estate, Vivien Ujvári will give all the information about the terroir, the breathtaking terraces of Mád village.
The wines are available in the UK and certainly in Hungary.
The online masterclass starts at 19.30 on 30th October.
