North Eastern Hungary is one of the oldest wine regions in the world. The soil is a rich volcanic rhyolite containing crystalline fragments that foster wines with a firm character.
Furmint is Hungary’s most important white wine grape and it shines here, blended with a touch of Harslevelu and Yellow Muscat.
Our “goalie” visited the region often as a kid growing up. Lucky bugger remembers the caves where the wines are stored. I think this would be an ideal place to have our next tasting.
Aromatic and fruity (hints of lemons and limes). Its lovely and dry and super smooth. A crisp and very clean finish.
I think this one will age very well.
