Zsirai Furmint among UK Jascots’ Team’s favourites
Jascots is a UK wine importer and distributor whose webshop attracts customers with several smart ideas. If a label is damaged, you can buy it with discount. Certified organic and biodynamic wines are grouped, they are easy to find. Vegan wines are also available with one click. Canned wines are popular in the US, however they are harder to find in the old continent. Jascots sells some of those, too. The company have received numerous acknowledgments, for example it was On-Trade Supplier of the Year in 2016 according to International Wine Challenge.
It is worth checking their “mixed cases” frequently, the wines of the case are selected wisely. The “Team’s Favourite Mixed Case” costs only 150 GBP now instead of 166 GBP and it includes 12 bottles of wine. Rioja, Friuli, Marlborough, Burgenland, Loire – mixed case indeed, and the strongest merit is of course the Tokaji Furmint 2016 by by Zsirai Winery. The bottle is hiding on the right of the photo, but it will shine out of the collection with its complexity and its unique mineral notes. “Full bodied and rich with plenty of fresh stone fruit, white peach and hints of blossom. Long finish with ageing potential” – says the British team and they recommend the wine with pork with porcini sauce or rabbit and beetroot.
