Estate Furmint, Juliet Victor 2017

Juliet Victor

Juliet Victor

  • Hungary
Juliet Victor is a relatively new estate and was founded in 2015 by József Váradi. Located in the heart of Hungary's Tokaj region, in the historic town of Mád, Juliet Victor has 25 hectares of some of the highest quality and most historically significant areas. Here, the estate uses the same handpicked Furmint grapes to produce dry wines as well as blends with Hárslevelu and Muskotály for their sweet Szamorodni and Aszú wines. The vines are on average 45-50 years old but the Bomboly vineyard includes some wines that are over 100 years old.

Juliet Victor produces linear, mineral-driven wines which emphasise the volcanic terroir and express the individual qualities of each of the vineyards (Betsek, Király, Szent Tamás, Úrágya, Bomboly, Holdvölgy and Veres). Unique terroir qualities are fully capitalized on in state-of-the-art facilities that are complemented by ageing in large Hungarian oak casks. These casks are only lightly toasted, the intention is to enhance rather than mask the fruit. The wines are carefully crafted by winemaker Zsolt Vincze, son-in-law of Hungary's most influential winemaking figure, István Szepsi.
