The cuvee consists of 60% Olaszrizling, 20% Harslevelu, and 20% Furmint.
I continue my exploration of Hungarian wine, the unexplored country.
Pale straw color.
Fresh clean citrus smell, ripe apple.
Dry melon flavor, saline texture, hints of grapefruit, light-to-medium-bodied, tart, slight bitterness at the end, which also seems warm. Admirable intensity.
Olaszrizling is grown in many places, though not as many as it used to be, but only in Hungary, I think, is it generally accepted as a source of fine wine.
Fine bottle for $22.87, I feel justified in learning more about Hungarian wine, which is so little known here.
