TASTE
A captivating expression of Hungary’s most famous white grape variety, this Furmint offers intense aromas of peach, blood orange and herbs. The palate is dry, with a satisfying fullness in the middle, leading to a crisp grapefruity finish.

PRODUCER
Christian Sauska is a Hungarian entrepreneur who, having forged a successful career in the USA, decided in 1999 to establish a winery in his homeland. In 2000 he converted a historic building in Tokaj, formerly known as the Citizens’ Casino, into a production facility and tasting room. This was joined in 2006 by a new winery the other side of Hungary, in Villány. With red varieties grown in the latter region and white grapes in the former, Sauska is able to produce exemplary wines in numerous different styles.

VINEYARD
The vines are grown in six vineyards on a variety of soil types, including volcanic and loess, and are eleven to thirty-six years old. The grapes were hand-picked in September, with manual cluster selection.

WINERY
The grapes were cooled in dry ice to preserve the primary aromas and freshness after which they were pressed and fermented in stainless steel tanks at 18-20oC. Indigenous yeasts were utilised and the wine was aged for a short time in stainless steel before bottling in the December following the harvest.
