(2021) Furmint is the main grape of the famous sweet wines of Tokaji in Hungary, but more and more dry white wine examples are appearing on the shelves, including this very well priced and classy example that brims with succulent pear and apple fruit, a touch of herbal character, and a palate that has some weight and texture, a deal of sweet, ripe stone and orchard fruits, and excellent, gently saline acidity. For me the white wine star of the small selection from Lidl's Wine Tour tasted here.
(2016) A different wine from Royal Tokaji's 'Dry Furmint' or Vineyard Selection it appears, this blending Furmint with another Tokaji main grape, Hárslevelű. It is very dry, pithy, apple core and herby on the nose, the merest hint of something more peachy. On the palate the story is the same: crunchy apple and citrus just reveals an underlying layer of more unctuous stone fruits, but then the searing core of acidity pushes on. Sippable, fresh and seafood-friendly in a bone-dry style.
