This one, a barrel selection of wines from the company’s best vineyards, feels like satin on the palate. It’s dense with residual sugar, yet it’s not overwhelmingly sweet: Furmint’s fiery spice reins in the honeyed fruit while floral and herbal notes add lift. There’s a youthful tension as well, a prickle of energy that runs through the wine, promising that there’s more to come with time in the bottle.

The 188 g/l sugar gives the wine a luscious texture but by no means cloying – refreshing acidity (10.9 g/l) dances amongst dried apricot and layers of sweet spices, dried apricot and marmalade flavours, leading to a lingering finish. Similar to the Blue Label, the Gold Label has been aged in 300-500 litre second or third use Hungarian barrels, but the grapes used are mainly from the producer’s own vineyards.
