Demeter Zoltan Furmint 2018


no added sulfur

Country: Hungary

Region: Tokaj

Type: White Wine

Grape: Furmint

Zoltán’s one-man cellar rests inside a historic house built in 1790 just a few blocks from where the Bodrog and Tisza Rivers meet in the town of Tokaj. He’s fully committed to his own race against time to rediscover the terroir of Tokaj as well as the firm belief that Tokaj is one of the most important wine cultures in the world. After working abroad in Napa at Stags Leap, in Beaune to study viticulture and enology, and at larger estates in Tokaj, he has vast experience making dry Tokaj wines in Hungary.

As of 2008, Zoltán now focuses entirely on his own 9 single vineyards spread over 7 hectares. A champion of the present and future of the region, he is working to see that the laws governing the production of the wine respect tradition and the good taste of those who consume Tokaji. His selection of dry, Főbor (Original Hungarian word for Szamorodni), and Aszú, are broadly considered benchmarks, clearly reflecting the complex geology of their site, the character of their varieties and Zoltán’s intensive cerebral nature.

This furmint is very clean wine, fresh and floral, with aromas of fresh apple, notes of ripe fruits and crunchy acids on the palate, and a long, elegant finish.
