Dry Furmint Makes 2017 Its Year

Posted by  on

The Global Traveler magazine recently featured our Château Dereszla Tokaji Dry 2014 to talk about the rising trend of dry Furmint. The Tasting Panel Magazine has also declared 2017 the Year of Furmint and introduced their readers to the region and to the dry wines of Tokaji in multiple of their editions, including the August 2017 Edition (page 38).

As the second largest producer in the Tokaji Wine Region in Hungary, Château Dereszla cultivates about 60 hectares and the vineyards are located on eight different locations. The diversity of the terroir creates the perfect conditions for blending and producing exceptional sweet dessert wines as well as the increasingly popular high-quality dry white wines.

“Outstanding among them is Château Dereszla 2014, a light yellow shaded, medium-bodied wine rich with fresh fruit flavors, luxuriant hints of flowers and spice and a refreshing acidity that keeps it tantalizing. It is a delicious wine.”

Eunice Fried, Global Traveler, August 2017 Edition, page 25

To add to its amazingness, the Château Dereszla Tokaji Dry 2014 has a score of 90 points from Wine Enthusiast.

“This delicate Hungarian white wine is a blend of 86% Furmint, 9% Yellow Muscat and 5% Kabar. It has enticing aromas of white flowers, botrytis, gardenia, apple blossom and apricot that prepare your palate for flavors of peach juice, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, caramelized pineapple and a crisp clean finish.” – Jeff Jenssen, Wine Enthusiast
