Description

Furmint is the grape used to produce Hungary’s renowned sweet wine, Tokaji. When vinified dry, however, Furmint is capable of producing some very compelling white wine. This wine exhibits a bouquet of white flowers,grapefruit and pears. A refreshing texture gives way to expressive fruit on the palate and a lingering mineral finish. It will pair well with shellfish, white fishes, salads and picnic foods, but it also possesses the weight and profile to match with white meats and creamy pasta dishes as well.

Estate

The name Disznóko meaning "the rock of the wild boar" was first recorded in 1413 and refers to a large rock atop a small hill overlooking the vineyards. Listed as a "first growth" as far back as 1732, this 150ha vineyard in the south west of the Tokaji region has long been regarded as one of the region's finest. As with much of Tokaji, Disznóko's fortunes suffered under nationalization during the Communist era. But, in 1992, it was purchased by AXA Millésimes (owners of Château Pichon Longueville and Quinta do Noval, amongst others) who have reinvigorated Disznóko and put in the love and investment required to return it to the top rank of Tokaji estates.
