Pale golden colour, ripe apple, flat peach and white flowers on the nose, followed by a thick, incredibly complex, rich and flavoursome palate. An artisanal wine from the basalt soil at the foot of the hill, pressed in a small Kossuth press, fermented spontaneously, bottled manually in the tiny Somlóvásárhely cellar.

"It’s as good as ever, confident, evocative and typical. The nose is profound and complex displaying characteristically strong chalky, alkaline, saline notes reminiscent of spring water and sea spray. There is not much fruit, the rest of the nose is made up of honey, quince and meadow flowers. Quite full-bodied, the palate is vibrant with acidity of different wave lengths, good grip and intense savoury aromas. The finish is long with good tension and distinctive saline and honeyed notes. A special wine. This is still a landmark of the Hungarian wine scene. 7 points."

(Alföldi Merlot, Művelt alkoholista, July 2019)
