Château Pajzos T Furmint 2018Taste the white wine varietal that is behind the famous Hungarian sweet Tokaji.
The Château Pajzos T Furmint has a pale yellow colour. It has a scent that reminds you of a dewy spring meadow. Highly aromatic with notes of ripe peaches and pears on the nose. This delicious White is made of Furmint, one of the main grape varieties that makes the famous sweet wine Tokaji. The palate is clean and fresh with rich stone and tropical fruits. The finish is long and fruity with a freshing citrusy acidity and a hint of creaminess.
Château Pajzos T Furmint is a blend of 90% Furmint, 6% Hárskevekü, 4% Yellow Muscat. The harvest was performed in 2 stages, in mid and late September. During winemaking process, alcohol was kept low to preserve the fresh fruit notes. The grapes undergo fermentation for 6 months in stainless steel tanks.
The region lies in the middle of Europe where summers are hot and winters are cold. In autumn, it is pleasantly warm during the day but can be very cold and misty at night, making this the perfect condition. The vineyard ground has excellent heat-retaining properties so grapes ripen beautifully.
