Despite the fact that winemaking in
Hungary has at least 2000 years tradition, the modern wine industry
only dates from the fall of the communist system 20 years ago.
Hungary has a myriad of different terroirs within it's small
territories. Amongst the 22 wine regions Tokaji Hegyalja is
unquestionably the best known and arguably has the most potential
to produce world class wines. Loads of local varietals, unique
botrytised sweet wines and excellent mineral soils make this region
one of the best in the world.
Furmint is the flag bearer for the region and is already Central
Europe's best known indigenous varietal. It yields excellent
age-worthy dry whites, with splendid mineral expression, and it is
also the backbone of the legendary sweet wines of Tokaji.
Whilst famed for their sweet wines, their dry counterparts are
equally as good, and the Percze Dry Furmint and Mad Dry Furmint are
testament to this.
