2017 Szöke Irsai Oliver Matra Hungary

SKU #1377764

Szöke focuses on white wines made from the grapes of the Olaszrizling (Italian Riesling), Sylvaner, Hárslevelü (Linden-Leaf), Ottonel Muscatel, Tramini, Király Leányka, Chardonnay, Pinot Gris, and the oddly named Irsai Oliver. The Szöke family cultivates 50 hectares in the Cserepes and Peresi vineyards. From the importer: "Originally crossed in 1930, the parents of this native grape are Gewürztraminer and Muscat Ottonel. Not surprisingly, it's incredibly perfumed and floral. That said, it's not fat and weighty on the palate like Gewürztraminer can often be and there's no detectable residual sugar either. The finish has a mineral, almost saline quality that balances out the Muscat heavy aromatics. And while the style is decidedly reductive, it opens up right away and jumps out of the glass even when chilled. While it can easily stand alone as an aperitif, it pairs beautifully when fruit and salt play off of each other. Prosciutto and melon is a classic, but we've also found that Indian food (especially chutneys) pairs extremely well."
