On the nose; lemon, grapefruit, light petro, wet wool, smokey notes, saline and white & yellow lilies. The body is creamy. Notes of; smoke, saline, lemon & lime juice inferior melon, mix of ripe & underripe pineapple, light honey notes, soft, silty volcanic minerals, dry top soil dust, big round acidity with a round fruity mineral driven finish. Pair with simple meats, veggies, curry and dry cheeses, green salad. Producer notes...the winery is located in the village of Olaszliska just north of the village of Tokaj near the banks of the famous Bodrog River. Samuel farms roughly 5 hectares in this area (Határi vineyard) and an additional couple of hectares on the slopes of Mt. Tokaj. The soils on Határi are volcanic based (tuffa, obsidian), broken up limestone and clay. Most of their plantings are 90% Furmint and 10 % Hárslevelű...some as old as 90 years. They are mostly organic as no herbicides or pesticides are used. Grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and fermentation is in Hungarian oak barrels. No new oak is used. Photos of; Samuel Tinon, the descent into their ancient cellars and resting Tokaj cellar bottles.

Tonight's #winewednesday libations include #furmint from Samuel Tinon #didyouknow The name Furmint may have been taken from the word "froment" for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces. It was most commonly used in the production of the sweet wines of #Tokaj but today is also responsible for producing exciting zippy single variety wines such as the one pictures. If you like high acid #wine thank this just may be your ticket! #winelover #wineeducation

Simple flowers, nutty, full fresh clean. Reminds me of an easy Viognier or Chenin. Delivers.
