Hárslevelű is one of the remarkable indigenous grapes of the Somló Hill wine region. Single-varietal Hárslevelű wines are renowned for their intense aroma, and this elegant vintage from the volcanic Somló terroir is a great example.
Friendly character with white flowers, some honey and quince on the nose, combined with herbaceous, vegetal aromas. Exciting palate of white peach and exotic fruit flavours. Great balance, lively acidity and an intense mineral finish.
Try as an aperitif, or pair with light mezze such as dips, roast vegetables and salads. It makes a good match for seafood and grilled fish or serve it with fresh cheese.
