Furmint (white)

Susceptible to raisining and noble rot (known as aszú in Hungary's Tokaji), this full-bodied, high acid quality grape is the major partner in the blend with Hárslevelú which makes up Tokaji, the rich, long-lived wines of the Tokaj region in Hungary, now undergoing a revival thanks to western investments.

It can

produce a good, fiery dry white too. It’s also grown in Slovakia, Slovenia,

Croatia and Romania.
