Furmint food pairings: chicken in a mushroom cream sauce.

Sarah Emilson rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

Vibrant and light straw in colour, with a youthful nose of nectarine, pear, lime zest, lemongrass, white flowers, celery and green apple. Dry, with high acidity and leaning towards the lower level of medium in body and alcohol. Citrus, nectarine, limeleaf, green apple, green papaya, mint and a prominent flavour of steel minerality are found on the palate. A little less than moderate on the finish (except for that lime flavour which seems to stick around until the next sip). A good wine which does not require any cellaring; drink it now. This wine is crisp and refreshing, and will go well with Thai food, soft/salty goat's milk cheese, salads and fish dishes.
I enjoyed this wine with rainbow trout; the ingredients in the dish that best paired with the wine were fennel, tarragon, yellow beets and finger limes.
Furmint is perhaps best known for creating Tokaji’s classic sweet wines, but this versatile grape can also produce dry, food-friendly wines such as this one. Aromas and flavours of mushroom, pear, chamomile and lemon abound in this round and fruity wine. Medium-bodied, nicely balanced and with a lingering, lively and crisp finish. Aromatic & Flavourful.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
