Kardos Supreme Furmint 2015

This wine has lean minerality, a herbal hint of fresh oregano, and appealing tarte tatin notes. A mid-weight palate, slightly textured with pronounced acidity, it’s a bombshell of flavours, textures and complexity. It gets better and better with every sip – such an interesting and mind activating wine.

Careful canopy work during the growing season ensured fully ripened, high quality Furmint grapes to be selected from the unique Padihegy vineyard in Rátka. These were barrel fermented with wild yeast and then spent a further 6 months in barrel before bottling.

This winery ticks so many boxes... tiny and family owned, steeped in history, from Tokaj – the oldest classified wine region in Europe (1737), Furmint grape variety specialists, and just all round nice people.Located in the crazy sounding village of Mád (regarded as Tokaj's most important and prestigious wine area), the vineyards have been in the family for centuries, however, the opportunity to build the Kardos winery was only possible after the Central and Eastern Europe revolution of 1989. From humble beginnings of selling wines from their cellar door and to local bars, this boutique winery started to get more serious when the owners son, Gábor Jnr. came on board full time in 2008. Abandoning a law degree for the land, Gábor Jnr started modernising the winery, introducing strict yield restrictions, multiple bunch selection and selective harvesting techniques – all of which dramatically increased overall wine quality. With vineyards in Mád and the two neighbouring villages of Rátka and Bodrogkeresztúr, Kardos produce (in the words of Gábor Jnr) “Characteristic dry white Tokaji and late harvest sweet wines by optimising the exceptionally characteristics and extraordinary uniqueness of the Mád terroir”.They also craft the rare Tokaji Aszú only in exceptional vintages and only then in limited quantities. Their philosophy is to ‘Create of as natural wines as possible from concentrated, healthy, raw materials, in a clean environment and with as little intervention as possible'. Kardos wines are distinct, extremely tasty and of the highest quality... definitely a winery to keep an eye on.
