This is Demeter Csaba’s debut on this blog and with a reason. But you always have to give people another chance don’t you, even if he clearly needs to rethink what to wear on the head on the photo on the front page of ones website (or on any other photo for that matter).
This is a blend of 70% Hárslevelű and 30% Olaszrizling, but you wouldn’t tell.
After 7 months in a large barrel Hanga is pale golden yellow with an intense spicy bouquet flavored by notes of ripe apple and a minerally undertone. Fruity palate with apple here too with a chalky accent. The wine is surprisingly enjoyable at room temperature of appr. 20 degrees celsius too, even thourh from the midpalate starts a tingling, scratchy sensation (tannins?) followed by a strange aroma closest to a detergent (yes my galss was clean!). Otherwise there’s lot of very juicy gooseberry with hints of apple. Good wine for just above a thousand, would serve summer grill parties well.
Score: 4, 4+
Price: HUF 1350 (well worth it)
