O Produtor, tasting note published in June 13th 2022

A wine with broad appeal, capturing harmony and complexity in a very fresh and youthful manner. Vinification adopts a hedonistic approach to create an aspirational Furmint with oak notes to be enjoyed from the first sip. Fruity, exuberant, and pleasant on the palate... this is a wine you'll want to drink and savor!

MM55 Dry Furmint represents freshness, great complexity, and structure with a unique individual character.

A reinterpretation of Dry Furmint from Tokaj, one of the great – yet forgotten – wine regions of the world, whose importance dates back to the 16th century and has been praised by kings, popes, tsars, writers, and gourmets over the centuries. Tokaj wines were luxury wines, considered a sign of wealth.

The Tokaj region today consists of approximately 5,500 hectares of vineyards spread across 27 villages. The microclimate determined by volcanic clay or loess soils, sunny southern slopes, and the Tisza and Bodrog rivers provide favorable conditions for the development of native grape varieties like Furmint; a grape variety with enormous potential for extended aging.

Viticulture: Harvested from highly regarded vineyards classified as PDO of Szent Tamás, Nyúlászó, and Király, where soils are composed of volcanic rocks and clay minerals from the South-Zemplén Mountains, primarily zeolite and rhyolite.

Winemaking: Fermented and aged for 8 months in 300 L Hungarian oak barrels (70% new oak) with varying levels of toasting, to enhance the wines’ complexity. With vanilla notes that temper the vivid acidity of Furmint and seamlessly blend with the considerable mineral and extract of this cuvée.

Highly gastronomic, this wine pairs wonderfully with grilled lobster, pork belly, and even Moroccan tagine.

MA'D Moser

The MA’D MOSER project is the result of a partnership between Mad Wine and Lenz Moser.

It all started with Lenz’s passion for the region, when his father took him there at the age of just 14.

A few years ago, his professional life brought him back to Hungary where he met Rita Takaro, with whom he has been friends ever since. Last summer, Lenz and Rita embarked on an exploratory trip to Tokaj and decided to launch their project from Tokaj. They found an excellent partner in Karoly Kovacs, owner of the famous Mad Wine in Mád, and Gabor Urban, his excellent winemaker.

As Robert Mondavi said: “a vision always comes first”…
…and in 2022, this vision became a reality with the creation of MA’D Moser, whose goal is to bring a new and exciting interpretation of dry Furmint from one of the great – yet forgotten – wine regions of the world to national and international markets, reinventing dry Furmint from Tokaj.

The importance of Tokaj dates back to the early 16th century when it became a symbol of distinction among the upper classes and aristocracy in Europe. It was a luxury wine, associated with nobility, but communism put an end to that. With the collapse in Hungary in 1989, local enthusiasm, a focus on quality, and plenty of foreign investment, led by names such as Vega Sicilia and Hugh Johnson, restored Tokaj wines to their former glory. But today we look to a new era, led by MA’D Moser, to bring this ‘new’ grape to the world stage.
