Tasting :

"This has a lifted, peach tinged bouquet with orange-blossom, a hint of apricot and a very faint touch of clear honey. Very good definition. The palate is medium-bodied with good acidity, superb balance and a very complex mid-palate with dried apricot, spice, quince, marmalade and a tactile sensation I can only compare with Chinese Schezhuan peppers. This Furmint is utterly compelling: everything hits you on the back palate. Wonderful." -N.M. Wine Advocate -R. Parker
