Based in Austria’s Burgenland, Roland Velich works with lesser-known winemaking talents and indigenous varieties for his Hidden Treasures wines. This one comes from Somló in Hungary, where he teamed up with Tamás Kis of Somlói Vándor (whose wines are also recommended here). They blended this from hárslevelú, furmint and welschriesling, producing a fascinating white, ripe but not sweet, with flavors of rambutan and quince scented with lanolin, clove and a hint of smoke. The way it develops in the glass suggests this is best served decanted, and with something rich to eat, like pike in a cream sauce.
