Old gold in colour with a honeyed, waxy nose of peaches; medium-bodied, with a flavour of apricot jam balanced by lively acidity. Rich and full on the palate with great length.
Ripe stone fruit with green apple scents evolve to generous apricot and pear flavours against a backdrop of zesty acidity and delicate dryness on the finish. An interesting Hungarian take on neighbouring Austria’s signature white grape.
Very pale in colour with a spicy, orange and peach nose with a floral tip note; medium-bodied, off-dry, luscious and rich tangerine, honey and peach flavours.
Golden colour; honeyed peach bouquet with an earthy note; full-bodied, sweet and spicy flavours of honeyed apricot and orange peel with a long lingering finish.
A nice little red from the Hungarian grape Kékfrankos. It has a pretty nose of ripe cherry, raspberry and a hint of spice. It’s a smooth and flavourful wine on the palate with ripe red fruits, soft tannins and integrated tannins. Great value!
A very serviceable, food-friendly wine. Straw-coloured with a spicy apricot nose lifted with a floral note; medium-bodied, off-dry, herbal, minerally flavour finishing with a dried apricot flavour.
Located in Tokaji-Hegyalja in northeastern Hungary, the Megyer estate was classified as “First Growth” in 1772 by royal decree. Furmint, so often associated with the legendary long-lived Tokaji dessert wines, is capable of making complex, bone-dry, phenolic, mineral-laden and herbal dry white wines, which is certainly the case here. Hay, salted lemon, green fig, pear skin, green apple blossom, wild herbs and broken stone fill the medium-bodied frame. 8 months in stainless steel preserve the freshness, while a thin cushion of oil-slicked lees provides grounding. A striking intro to dry furmint and a brilliant value too.
