K&L Notes

While Hungary has a very, very old winemaking history, the country is mostly known for either Green Hungarian wine or sweet Tokaji, neither of which ever truly struck a resounding chord with the American consumer. The scene has changed recently, with a large influx of investment that has allowed many Hungarian wineries to modernize and clean up their winemaking capacities. The 2015 Oddity Furmint is sourced from first-growth vineyards in Mad, Tokaji, Hungary. Made from 100% Furmint grapes, The Oddity has an exotic nose of sliced red apples, cinnamon and gooseberries. The palate has great acidity with flavors of green apple, lime, nuts and spice notes. The finish is bright and lively with subtle aromas and refreshing flavors. Here’s a wine that is ideally suited for spicy dishes including Asian and Indian food, and also for cheeses and charcuterie.

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.
