Henye Tokaji Furmint Dry


Henye Tokaji Furmint has ripe pear, white grapefruit and white pepper spice aromas on the nose. Fragrant grape and pear fruit, with the softest suggestion of honeyed sweetness, harmonises with crisp, grapefruit pith acidity and a savoury, almost saline, crushed stone character. Soft and silkily textured, the finish is zesty, spicy and very long. A touch of residual carbon dioxide gives a delicate prickle on the tongue that enhances the refreshing nature of this delicious white.

Although labelled as a Furmint, this wine also includes 10% Muscat and 5% Hárslevelű. Under EU law, to be labelled with a single grape variety a wine only needs to include a minimum of 85% of that named grape, there is no requirement to mention the other grapes in the blend.

Completely unoaked, this zesty, minerally gem is a brilliantly enjoyable alternative to Sauvignon Blanc. Don't be put off by unfamiliar grape names or regions and give it a try, we're certain you'll love it.

Why we like this wine

First of all, it's great to find and unusual grape variety that delivers as well as the more internationally known ones. It also delivers really well in terms of value for money. It's really elegant and surprisingly complex for its price. We drank it with a pork steak with paprika when we were at the winery and it was a great combination.

  • Top value
  • Surprisingly complex
  • Elegant and fine
