Mád Moser Tokaj, Furmint Dry MM55, Tokaj, Hungary, 2021
(at London, 25 Nov 2022)
Drinking Window: 2022 - 2025
Sourced from the volcanic vineyards of Nyulászó and St. Tamás around the village Mád, this dry Furmint was fermented and aged in Hungarian oak barrels (300L, 70% new) for 8 months. Toasted oak on the nose, with creamy coconut, yuzu citrus and peach, plus a smokey hint. Peachy and savoury, with great concentration of stone fruits and orange zest, seasoned with a pinch of white pepper. Richly textured on the palate, the 6.5g/l of residual sugar is refreshed by a solid line of acidity (also 6.5g/l). The yuzu zest and vinous warmth (14% alcohol) linger on the coconutty finish. Not to be mistaken for the producer's 'MM5' edition of dry Furmint, which has a lighter touch of oak.
