Excellent as an aperitif, Late Harvest is a wonderful accompaniment for white meat and game and is perfect with fruit-based desserts. This blend of 95% Harslevelü and 5% Furmint has a decidedly fruity bouquet (apricots, figs) with a palate impression that is vibrant, smooth, and original and distinguished in style.

Terrific aperitif. Great golden color, fragrant fruity, honey nose, medium body, 10 - 12 second finish, good mouth feel, apricot, pear, honey - satisfying and delicious. Had a bottle with wine friends at Gold Mirror Italian restaurant for aperitif. Paired perfect with the variety of foods we had. Beautiful label too.
Had a second bottle last weekend at a friend's birthday party. It was the birthday boy's Hungarian friend, Gabor that set me to looking for this wine. He and other Hungarians were there to drink and they gave their hearty approval. Always a good sign when the natives smile.

Hungary

- Better known for its paprika than its wine, Hungary is nonetheless one of Eastern Europe's most significant wine-producing countries. Exerjo, Furmint, Hárslevelü and Mezesfeher are just some of the indigenous (and unpronounceable!) varieties most widely planted. And Tokaji is Hungary's biggest success story. Made since the sixteenth century, Tokaji is an extremely sweet wine that was adored by the Russian Tsars. It is made in a manner similar to Sherry, and is reputed to be the longest lived, non-fortified wine in existence (a few hundred years is not unheard of). Hungary's continental climate--predictably cold winters and hot summers--makes it an ideal location for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon as well.
