2012 Fuleky ‘Pallas’, Late Harvest Tokaji, Tokaj, Hungary
This late harvest delight is perfect for accompanying your Candy Cap Pot De Creme. It starts with allowing the grapes to undergo exposure to the famous “Noble Rot”, Botrytis Cinerea. The fungus concentrates the sugar in the grapes and leaves behind a distinct honey flavor. The furmint varietal features a natural acidity making it great to be enjoyed with food.
