Evolúció Furmint 2016
Ranked the #15 White, Rosé & Sparkling Wine at our March 25, 2017 "Big Taste" of The Vineyard Wine Tasting Event.
Furmint is one of the traditional varietals used to make Tokaj white wines and Aszù when it is blended with Muscat and Hárslevelű. The name Furmint is taken from the French word "froment" for the wheat-gold color of the wine it produces. Evolúció is made from a selection of vineyards especially identified to create a well balanced and food complementing wine. The grapes are hand harvested, de-stemmed, pressed gently, fermented cold in stainless steal tanks without further aging. Bottled young to retain the freshness and natural richness from the fruits. The rich fruity flavors and acidity result in a wine that is easy to pair with rich fish based dishes, creamy chicken or even with spicy dishes, also great with cheese especially dry, matured goat cheese. One can experiment with slow cooked beef short ribs, it will benefit from Evolúció's high acid and rich profile.
