Royal Tokaji The Oddity Furmint 2018
The Oddity is a crisp wine with lovely acidity. It is complex, elegant and balanced, exhibiting plenty of fruit on the nose and palate. The Oddity can be enjoyed by the glass with a bowl of olives; it partners well with dishes with chili and warm spices as well as cream sauces or garlic.
The first Tokaji Aszu wine was created in the 1600s, perhaps by accident - a harvest delayed by threat of enemy invasion. In 1700, Tokaj became the first European region to have its vineyards classified, its uniquely varied terroirs and climates rated Primae Classis, Secundae Classis, Tertius Classis by Prince Rakoczi of Transylvania. This classification system is still used in Hungary today.
