Királyudvar’s Furmint Sec is the estate's signature dry white blend and is easily among the best dry wines produced in Tokaj.

Vineyard Notes: Királyudvar has six main vineyards located in Tokaj's heartland in the towns of Mád and Bodrogkeresztúr. All are historically important grand cru sites; including Henye, Percze, Becsek, and the great Lapis. This wine comes primarily from the Percze Vineyard, which is a picturesque ten-acre hillside vineyard nestled within a colorful fruit orchard.

Winemaking Notes: The grapes are gently whole-cluster pressed, settled, fermented with the native yeast, and then aged in neutral barrels.

Tasting Notes: This innovative dry wine wondrously balances Furmint's viscous intensity and bright acidity. A delightful and unusual white, this full-bodied Furmint Sec exhibits delicate floral aromas, citrus fruit flavors and fine, food-friendly acidity that converge to a focused, attention-grabbing mineral finish. Drink with light cream sauces, olive oil based sauces, or even lightly spicy Asian cuisine.

    A lithe, light- to medium-bodied white, with the light fleshiness on the palate finely meshed with mouthwatering acidity and expressive flavors of Jonagold apple, white cherry, slivered almond and saline. Tangy. Drink now through 2021.
