Light and floral in style, the freshness and elegance of this wine is quite remarkable. The palate, like the nose, shows lemon and grapefruit notes, and a pepper spicy nuance with minerality on the finish. It has thirst quenching acidity.
Hungary is well known for its sweet wines but dry wines from Furmint are becoming more popular. The grapes are harvested earlier that for their sweeter brethren but some characteristics remain. A medium bodied wine that’s like a fruit salad in a glass. Citrus fruit, apple, pink grapefruit and melon are all present alongside a lovely mineral streak. Refreshing acidity keeps it all crisp. A great aperitif.
A refreshing Pinot Grigio from an exciting new area of Hungary, produced from grapes grown on the shore of the Danube. Delicate peach and grapefruit characters combined with a ripe and zesty flavour and great minerality. More Pinot Gris than Pinot Grigio...
All of the wines from Pheasant’s Tears are fermented and aged in qvevri. These vessels have been used to ferment and store wines since 6000BC. They are made from clay and lined with beeswax then buried underground where the temperature remains constant. Rich in the nose with creamy vanilla and exotic spices, this dry white delivers toasted almond with echoes of dry sherry. Mtsvane will work well with chicken, grilled tuna and vegetable dishes
