Description

The first attention is caught by its brilliant clarity. The essence of apricot and quince elegantly rules the nose with a graphitic frame. The balanced sips reveal gentle layers of passion fruit, pink grapefruit and quince – consciously deepening the sensation. Sophisticated and modern wine in the spirit of a crystal clear thought; made of the immaculate furmint bunches of the historical first growth Király-vineyard (King-vineyard).
