Barta Pince Egy Kis Furmint 2020
2020 was a cool vintage with below-average number of sunny days, slowing down the ripening of grapes. Our insistence on a perfectly ripe crop resulted in delaying the harvest until the skin of grapes had turned yellow, which eventually meant that the picking for this wine started on 21st September and finished on 18th October. 10 per cent of the juice was fermented in oak barrels, the rest in a steel tank. Bottled on 3rd March 2021.
This wine has nice, long and vibrant acidity, showing elegance and strong character. Flavours of fresh citrus and white-flesh fruit on the palate, complemented by the salintiy from the terroir on the finish.
A little dry Furmint is what the name of this wine means. Egy kis is the ‘prefix’ for our second brand under which we offer wines that are aimed at the ‘beginner wine drinker’ who are looking for high-quality, yet easy-to-love, fruity and fresh entry-level wines that can open the door to wine connoisseurship.
