Barta Öreg Király-dűlő Furmint 0929 2017 ****+ “A beautiful dry Furmint, from a superior parcel of the Oreg Kiraly Vineyard that was harvested on September 29, 2017 (thus the designation). It is a supple, rich, single-vineyard wine that is full-bodied, well structured, and balanced, with a very long finish. It tastes of pear, white peach, pineapple, toast, oak, and passion fruit.”
Barta Öreg Király-dűlő Furmint 2017 **** “The 2017 Furmint is excellent: full-bodied, supple, and fairly rich in flavor, with good balance, and a long finish, tasting of pear, toast, apple, vanilla, oak, and lime.”
Barta Egy Kis édes Furmint 2017 **** “It is medium-bodied, quite rich in flavour (pineapple, apricot, orange blossom, honeysuckle, lime), balanced, and lingering on the finish. Great value.”
