Description

"From the beginning, Pazjos winemaking stressed the importance of a great dry base-wine made from Furmint grapes for their Aszu wines. The volcanic, rocky soils ensure that the Furmint grapes are both rich in natural acidity and concentration. The Furmint is bottled in the Spring after harvest. The flavor ranges from apricot to grapefruit, with notes of nuts, spice and honey. The Furmint has aspects that remind one of Viognier, Pinot Gris, and Sauvignon Blanc, yet it is a unique wine. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif or as an ideal companion to full flavored seafood, cheeses, and a range of white meat dishes, and all Asian cuisine. Its flavors are as appealing as they are original." -Importer
