Taste our sparkling wines with Sue Tolson

‘Thanks to Tokaj’s moderate-to-cool climate, the Furmint can achieve full ripeness while retaining its hallmark high acidity. This, combined with its relatively neutral flavour and moderate alcohol levels, lays the foundation for quality sparkling wines. Furmint shows a similar sugar:acid ratio to Chardonnay when picked at the right moment.’ (Caroline Gilby MW)

Join the guided tastings for a deep dive into why Furmint is great for classy traditional method sparkling wines (plus a pét-nat). Sue Tolson (Hungary based wine writer and MW student) will introduce 6 wines during each half an hour speed tasting @ the Bubble Bar table, at 12, 1 pm, 2 pm, 3 pm and 4 pm.
