Kolonics, Furmint, Somló, Hungary, 2019
(at Decanter Tasting Suite, London, 23 Mar 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2024
There's 9g/litre of residual sugar in this off-dry Furmint grown on volcanic soils in the Somlo region, but it's balanced brilliantly by the high acidity, with some spice from the 11 months spent in large acacia barrels. Rich and full-bodied, this oozes spice and ripe orchard fruit - think baked apples... Try the more obscure Juhfark from the same producer.
