We have just released the 2015 dry Furmint from Disznókő, in an entirely new presentation.
As you can see, the bottle takes its form from that of the classic, smaller, Tokaji Aszú bottle, reinforcing clearly the message that our dry Furmint is from the great region of Tokaj, and in fact in our case from the vineyard of Disznókő itself. The label has also been much improved, and it is the first time that we have used glass stoppers, as a more elegant alternative to screw cap. I like this new presentation very much, as it has a quality and style that are harmonious with the wine.
There has been considerable development of the dry whites of Tokaj in recent years, and there are some excellent dry wines now being produced from the region, of varying styles. Our wine is vinified in stainless steel tanks, and sees no oak, our aim being to preserve the freshness and minerality that are natural to the furmint grape. It is a wonderful accompaniment to seafood, and a wine that is capable of astonishing people in a blind tasting.
Of course, the primary focus of all our efforts at Disznókő is on the production of the great rich Aszú wines, but we are very proud of our dry Furmint and I invite you to discover it.
