Demeter Zoltan Dry Furmint

Zoltán Demeter is part of the first generation to craft Tokaj wines producers in Hungary’s post-Communist era, after decades of agriculture that emphasized quantity over quality. Although he originally founded his winery in 1996, Zoltán continued to consult for others before deciding to focus solely on his own wines in 2008.

He farms nine single vineyards, some 7 hectares in Tokaj, all of them classified as “first growths” and all planted to vines averaging about 40 years of age. No chemical pesticides or fertilizers are used, and sulphur is only applied when absolutely necessary, by hand. In his micro-winery, the grapes are naturally fermented and aging occurs in a combination of stainless steel and neutral Hungarian oak barrels.

Demeter Zoltan Dry Furmint is a blend of Hold-völgy, Veres and Boda vineyards. A very clean wine, fresh and floral, with aromas of fresh and baked apple, notes of ripe fruits and crunchy acids on the palate. The long finish is enhanced by 8 grams of residual sugar.
