The ageing potential of Furmint in Tokaj

Ageability is one of my arguments in favour of adding Furmint to the list of great grapes, channelling aspects of its half-siblings like Riesling and Chardonnay, says Caroline Gilby MW.

Ageing gracefully is something much admired in wine – as it transforms from fresh and fruity into something more layered, complex and intriguing. Not all grapes can age but most of the best do.
