2014-C Beres Estate Dry Tokaji Furmint, Tokaj, Hungary

This tasty Dry Furmint might fall into the "youthful, trendy, lighter style wines" Béres produces but it sure is good and shows the diversity of the Furmint grape. As we saw with the Gróf Degenfeld Furmint we featured in our April Club release, Furmint is often compared to Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc and Riesling. This Dry Furmint from Béres, which is indeed drier than the Gróf Degenfeld, initially feels more in the vein of Riesling with a petrol character and a wet stone minerality. But as the wine opens up, the honeyed beeswax notes of Chenin Blanc come through and then even Sauvignon Blanc-like aromas of lime zest and fresh cut grass. The flavors on the light-bodied palate all come together with a surprise addition of green apple skin and the wine ends with a hint of white pepper mixed with a faint suggestion of roasted green pepper. The finish is long with very bright, mouth-watering acidity and a fun little spritzy kick.
