Product Description

If the title of this wine leaves you scratching your head in bewilderment don't despair. This is not your run of the mill white offering. Furmint is Hungary's prized, unique grape type that is the backbone of the famed Tokaji dessert wines as well as dry wines such as this. It has been on this Wine Buyer's radar to find a reasonably priced example of dry Furmint from a fresh vintage for... well forever. So, when Evolucio fell into our lap there was much rejoicing. This downright delicious white has a fleshy texture; peach, pear and canteloupe fruit notes; yellow flower complexities; and a snappy energetic finish. Like an Alsace Pinot Gris with an exotic side, an unoaked Chardonnay plus? Sure. But it's also a great example of dry Furmint, a wine worth waiting for. Pairings: Cauliflower-Cheese Casserole; Chicken Gyros Wrap
