#NWTW Week 19: Dry Furmint from Hungary

Flags - Hungary

We really wanted to go off the beaten track for a couple of weeks here at NWTW and head for some of the lesser known areas. Well in fairness, to most wine-o’s Lebanon and Hungary are definitely not off the beaten track, but for most people out there we’re hoping last week and this one will be a new thing for you.

Hungarian wine production is most famous for the Tokaji sweet dessert wines. They are right up there as some of the most complex, beautiful, and sometimes silly expensive wines on the market. If you ever get a chance to try one though….bloomin’ heck….it’s worth it!

This week, we’re going to go for the same grape that a lot of the dessert wines are made from, Furmint, but we’re going to have the dry versions!

My choices this week are:

Majestic Wine
Royal Tokaji, 2011 Dry Furmint (Not on the internet, check at your shop)

Don’t stock one

Don’t stock one

Spirited Wines
Don’t stock one

As you can see, er….not too easy to find one, so maybe have a flick through some local shops.

Happy hunting
