94 points Erzsébet 2012 Furmint Király Dűlő Tokaj
This wine’s exotic, honeyed nose promises great things, and its palate delivers with a wildly compelling flavor blend of toasted hazelnuts, wildflower honey, tarte tatin, crispy chicken skin and roasted fall mushrooms. Intensely concentrated and rich in flavor, this is beautifully balanced by powerful acidity. It’s fantastic!
94 points Zsirai 2015 Furmint Tokaji Középhegy
Four hectares of vines are dedicated to this vineyard, 60% of which is Furmint. The wine is bright and golden in its glint, and its aromas are packed with sweet baking spices. It’s round with whispers of viscosity and on the finish shows a lovely and dynamic juiciness of pit fruit flavors. This team of sisters has done everything to make this a wine for folks to crave.
