The introductory Dry Furmint. The white rhyolite tuff bedrock of the Betsek vineyard, and the large amount of clay mineral it contains, form a very characteristic fruity base for the wines made from it, framed by a tiny but even more exciting soft and velvety bitter finish.

2019 again provided an opportunity to show the very complex values of the vineyard in its own style. We managed to enclose the typical Betsek tickets in 2409 bottles in a round fruity fresh form, including a pleasant bitter finish that elegantly flickers at the end of the sip.

Tasting notes: Lively, vibrant, long, complex wine. Fruit bomb explodes in the mouth.

The nose shows hints of creamy vanilla, honey and quince. It’s still youthful on the palate, with lovely intensity of quince and apricot supported by a fine acid backbone and very long finish. Vibrant, deep and friendly.

The suggested drinking temperature is between 10-12 °C.  The wine wonderfully accompanies with white fish dishes, seafood or pasta dishes but it is also very drinkable just on its own.
