Winemaker Notes

Furmint is a white varietal grown in Hungary and is the main ingredient of Tokaji Aszu. This yellowish-green grape displays a bouquet reminiscent of ripe apples in youth. After aging in wood, Furmint develops aromas of honey and walnuts. Rich in extract, it makes a heady, robust wine with pronounced acid. It is an early-budding, late-ripening variety that is particularly succeptible to botrytis. Often characterized by its high alcohol levels, Furmint's high acidity gives the wine longevity.

The Royal Tokaji 2005 Furmint is a dry, white wine with apricot, ripe apple and hint of honey on the nose. Well-balanced with a nice mineral backbone, this clear light-colored wine displays flavors of apples and fruit with just a touch of lemon zest.

Wine & Spirits
Floral and lasting, this is delicious, elegant furmint. It covers octaves of flavor, from bass notes of stones to searing citric sopranos, the middle range filled out with flowers, mint and stone fruit. Clear, clean and invigorating, it works as well as an aperitif as it does with a main dish of seared scallops.

Royal Tokaji was founded in 1990 by well-known author Hugh Johnson and a small group of investors who were inspired to restore and preserve Hungary’s precious wine legacy after the fall of Communism. Tokaji is the world’s original sweet white wine – the “cult wine” of the 18th and 19th centuries – and the Tokaj wine region was the first to have classified vineyards. At the end of the 17th century, Prince Rakoczi classified the finest vineyards into: great first growths, first growths, second growths and third growths. Royal Tokaji owns five of those first and second growth vineyards, including one of Hungary’s two great first growths: Mézes Mály.

The winery produces a range of exceptional wines from dry to sweet, including several single-   vineyard aszú (botrytis-affected) wines and Essencia, the free-run juice of botrytised “raisins.” The wines’ distinct character results from the varied volcanic soils of the classified vineyards, indigenous grapes and yeast, traditional winemaking methods and barrel-aging in the winery’s 13th-century underground cellars. Richness with vibrant acidity is the hallmark of all the Royal Tokaji wines.
