Tokaj holds the title of the most famous wine region in Hungary thanks to its renowned botrytized Tokaji dessert wines. The main viticultural centres here are the towns of Mad, Tarcal and of course Tokaj. The grape varieties used in making Tokaji wines are Furmint, Harslevelu and Sárgamuskotály (Muscat Blanc). Furmint, which dominates the Tokaji wines, is famous for its naturally high acidity, high sugar levels and peppery aromatic profile. Very promising dry whites from this region!
Furmint is a very famous white grape variety from Hungary. Indigenous to the Tokaj region, Furmint produces best quality Sweet Tokaji wines. Its exceptional acidity gives white Hungarian wines incredible longevity. Furmint grapes are very susceptible to botrytis and are naturally high in sugar so when blended with Harslevelu and Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains it creates some of the most complex and long living wines. Besides Hungary, the variety can be found in Austria, Slovakia and Slovenia.
