Vinification: 2017 was a good year in Tokaj. The fast start of ripening in April-May improved the production yield. Summer was long and hot in August, which had a positive impact on dry wines. The varieties Furmint and Hárslevelű matured almost at the same time. In this vintage, the producer was able to make highly concentrated wines with nice floral aromas and relatively high acidity. Chateau Dereszla Volcanic Furmint 2017 was fermented and aged for several months in stainless steel tanks, no aging in oak.

Enjoy together with: grilled fish dishes, poultry or spring salad
