Hidden Treasures NR3 Riesling - Furmint, Balaton, Hungary 2017

Regular price $ 34.87

With the “Hidden Treasures”, the former Blaufränkisch pioneer Roland Velich is devoting himself to the generally little-known Hungarian wine scene. Hungary is best known for the noble sweet Tokaji. But much more is happening in the former Eastern Bloc country today. For example at Lake Balaton or Lake Balaton, where wine has been grown for centuries. This cuvée from the Tokaj vine variety Furmint and Riesling is an absolute character head. Not an exalted fruit game in the bouquet, as you might expect. Instead, stony-smoky notes, dried flowers, apple chips and just a hint of yellow stone fruit. Spicy in the mouth, slim, almost wiry, with subtle power,  nice pressure on the palate and enormous freshness. The notorious acidity of both grape varieties is also harmoniously mild and gives the whole a fine finish. Very beautiful, characterful wine, which as a meal companion increases its teeth.
