Like walking through an apple orchard during harvest season, this wine boasts fresh white-flesh fruit and citrus. Characterized by spice, it’s unapologetically aromatic with a hint of floral notes.
The perfect light-bodied wine to sip on a patio, this dry Furmint has notes of bright pear, golden apple and apricot with a touch of Meyer lemon. It has integrated honeyed and candied ginger notes and a gentle touch of marzipan. Acid-driven and great on its own or as a companion to any summer patio dish, this wine boasts a long finish packed with flavour and complexity.
Pair with shrimp tempura, seared sea scallops in lemon, butter and tarragon sauce, grilled lobster tails or BBQ vegetable skewers.
Fuzzy peach candies, or real-life fuzzy peaches fresh from a fresh B.C fruit stand.
Stone fruit aroma which might need a little bit of glass-swirling for you to perceive it.
Common in cool climate white wines, this aroma can range from fresh citrus to lemon zest.
From Granny Smith to Red Delicious, apple makes for a delightfully crisp aroma.
You just received a bouquet from a secret admirer and the smell is intoxicating.

Coming from one of the world's oldest wine making countries with wine production dating back to the 1600’s, coming across these wines is surprisingly rare. Tokaj was the first designated wine region in the world, declared so by royalty in 1737. Wine has been made in Hungary since it was part of the larger Roman Empire, and started with the Romans bringing vines to the region. Tokaj wine is so important to Hungary that it is even mentioned in the country’s national anthem, “Himnusz'': “In the grape fields of Tokaj, you dripped sweet nectar.” However, the wine industry didn't really take off until the fall of communism, when capitalists started seeking new investment opportunities. Tokaj was originally known for sweet dessert wines. Made from Botrytized grapes (a “noble rot” causing grapes to concentrate their juice, similar to Sauternes), this wine had its peak popularity in the eighteenth century. Due to climate changes and a shift in style preferences, there’s a more significant production of dry wines from the region. Made from Furmint grapes native to Tokaj, this wine is a beautiful example of what Hungary has to offer. Drink now or in 3 years from now at 10°C.
