Furmint is a Hungarian white grape variety indigenous to Hungary’s Tokaj region. Furmint grows vigorously, ripens late, and produces wines with powerful yet refined acidity. This varietal is known for picking up the distinctive minerality of the Hungarian soils where it is grown. With the “weight and structure of Chardonnay, the fruitiness of Chenin Blanc, and the acidity and minerality of Pinot Grigio and Weisser Riesling,” it is used to make diverse, exquisite dry white wines, as well as its historical flagship wine, the famous Tokaji Aszú.
Cherry Point is a new american bistro located in a former butcher shop that serves house-made, ethically produced charcuterie, seasonal vegetables and fresh interpretations of classics like steak frites au poivre and grilled seafood. It’s been said that “if Balthazar had a cooler, younger brother who lived in Greenpoint, that cooler, younger brother would be Cherry Point.”
