The fragrant, savory and spicy, Furmint, is the white grape variety principally responsible for the highly desired, historically important and lusciously sweet, elixir called Tokaji. The wine called Tokaji is named after the Hungarian region from which it comes: Tokaj. Furmint is especially subject to noble rot, aka botrytis, a desirable fungus that can grow on grapes in humid environments after extended hang times. (The same fungus produces Sauternes and some of the finer dessert Rieslings of Germany. Aside from the grapes’ own interesting, innate flavors and aromas, botrytis infected Furmint grapes have ephemeral qualities reminiscent of ginger, saffron and honey. To make Tokaji, Furmint is usually blended with the more aromatic grape varieties of Hárslevelű and Muscat blanc à Petits Grains (locally called Sárga Muskotály). The result is an incredibly sweet, meditative, delicious Tokaji Aszú or the even sweeter Tokaji Eszencia.

Tasting Notes for Furmint

Furmint makes a sweet white wine with lemon, apple, honey, ginger, smoke and spice characteristics. More recently the motivations of proud, young Hungarian winemakers have brought Furmint into a new light as a delicately crisp, savory and spicy, dry white wine.

Perfect Food Pairings for Furmint

Try the dry versions with herb crusted pork loin, flaky fish, shellfish, sushi or anything spicy. Sweet versions pair with foie gras, caramelized apples and dark chocolate with orange.
