Furmint sparkling wine - a stunner
The Vino Gross Furmint Brut Nature 2013 is one of our sparkling wine highlights from Slovenia. In the production: spontaneous fermentation, then twelve months aging in large used wooden barrels. As a classic Brut Nature, Zero Dosage, so that in the second fermentation the liquid content is balanced purely by adding the same sparkling wine instead of adding a sugar-wine mixture. As with the best champagnes, this creates a top-class sparkling wine that is extremely dry and full of character. As usual with Vino Gross, no sulfur is added.
Thomas Schnabl, Dilpom Sommelier describes the Vino Gross Furmint Brut as follows:
"Radiant golden yellow. Fine perlage. Freshly broken farmhouse bread and some hay on the nose. Enormously complex. Grated macadamia nuts and chalk are added. The perlage always brings new aromas to the surface. Fleur de sel and browned butter on the palate. Solid acid structure. Brut Nature stands for a bone-dry finish with a focused reverberation. Tempted shamelessly to continue drinking. Potential for years.”
