Törley is the leading Sparkling Wine producer in Hungary. It was founded by József Törley in 1882 in Budafok and over the course of history became one of the leading sparkling wine producers in Europe. The Talisman range of wines comes from this highly regarded producer, and, as well as Bull's Blood, we also stock a Dry Furmint and Grüner Veltliner under the same label.
Dry in style, this Furmint has mouth-watering aromas of fresh lime and green pear balanced with summer herbs and fleeting notes of wood smoke.
An elegant choice for an aperitif and the perfect accompaniment to luxurious smoked salmon and succulent slow roasted belly pork.
The grapes for this delicious wine are harvested from the protected area of Felso-Magyarorszag in the north east of Hungary. The grapes are fermented in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures to intensify the crisp citrus flavours before bottling. It is widely believed that Furmint derives its name from froment, meaning wheat, and relates to the pale golden colour of the wine.
Decanter: 89/100 points. 'This light, zesty and refreshing tipple from Hungary's signature white grape, and offers fabulous value for money. Expressive and easy-drinking, with green apple characters and a hint of honey on the finish. One to have in the fridge on standby.
