Extra Brut Magnum

Tokaj

Warm Art Deco gold. An elegant blend of indigenous Furmint and Hárslevelű, along with Chardonnay. The nose dominated by pear and peach followed by dry apricot and fresh meadow flowers. Furmint seems to be more dominant in this size resulting in an elegant, decadent and powerful wine with intense, tiny bubbles. According to most experts, the Magnum format is to be superior to a regular sized bottle for maturing sparkling wine, because the ratio of air to liquid is lower in larger formats, allowing the wine to age more slowly.
