TN: 2008 Heidi Schrock Furmint

Melanie Wong Jul 4, 2009 04:03 PM

The 2008 Furmint from Heidi Schrock in Rust, Austria was one of the most fascinating wines among a sea of Grüner Veltliners and Rieslings. Blooming with acacia flowers and honeysuckle in the effusive nose, then citrus with grapey feline notes and beeswax on the palate sprinkled with gingerbread spices, delivering both savory and fruity in the same gulp, clean acid balance, carrying long and sleek, steely ending with a crisp and dry finish. Terry Theise Estate Selections. SRP: $31
EXCELLENT

    Thank you for that tasting note, Melanie! I have a bottle in the wine fridge and am now anxious to try it. What would be your rec for a good food pairing?
