Tokajicum – Furmint Darázskő – Dry 2017
Darázskő Furmint, is a featured estate wine of the Tokajicum Winery. Darázs means wasp, & kő means stone. Together, the name “Wasp-nest stone” comes from the Wasp-nest-like hectagonal formations and deposits of Tufa (variety of limestone) in the volcanic slopes of the region, that reflects the mineral rich notes of the region, in this wine.
Ripe pear, apples, and light citrusy aromas of orange, and a touch of honey on the nose. Medium body, with fresh acids and lovely, earthy minerals on the palate, underpinned with slight oaky flavours, gained from a careful, and moderate barrel ageing.
Recommended to consume on 10 C, with grilled, or roasted chicken, or vegetables.
