New Single Vineyard Furmint from Patricius Winery
Patricius “Furmint line-up” has always been attractive with Patricius Tokaji Furmint, organic Patricius Green Furmint, Patricius Furmint Selection (see below) and Patricius Brut méthode traditionelle sparkling wine made of 100% Furmint. In the UK Furmint lovers could be familiar with Patricius Tokaji Furmint available at The Great Wine Co. “This is an absolutely superb and fabulous-value dry wine. Chablis-like in structure, texture and vibrant acidity (no surprise, since Tokaji is on the same latitude as Chablis). It has far more expressive aromas and flavours of lemon zest, peach and honey. Patricius originally made this to satisfy demand for dry white wine within Hungary, however its quality is so exceptional that it has since become their number one export.”
Now a new brand was born: the single vineyard Patricius Tokaji Sajgó Furmint 2019. Sajgó Vineyard is one of the richest terroirs in the wine region. The excellent clay soils on thick volcanic tuff are full of obsidian and rich in hummus. The roots of the nearly sixty-year-old (pre clone selection) Furmint plantation reach down deep, and the bunches that ripen here carry refined minerality. This characterful Furmint has all the beauty of its variety. Rounded acidity, balance, elegance and creaminess. A great wine with long ageing potential.
