Jamie Goode - www.wineanorak.com:

"Taut citrus fruit. Open, pure, quite waxy and a bit nutty. Lively and mineral, this is bone dry with some complexity. " Reviewed March, 2013

Wine & Spirits:

"In Tokaji, Harslevelu is often planted in loess, and the wine is gentle and floral. In Somló, the soils are volcanic, and the wine is gentle only in comparison to the local Juhfark. The honey notes suggest that the grapes got very ripe, but the flavors are all smoke and soil, dark-toned with a firm, spicy grip. It's big enough to decant for a veal roast. "

Product Description:

"Literally translating to “Linden Leaf,” Hárslevelű certainly lends itself to the lime blossom teas and mild honeys that Linden trees are known for. More feminine than the Olaszrizlings and Juhfarks in the region, the texture is remarkably smooth and the acids are well balanced. Loosely bunched berries make it difficult for Botrytis to set it so the flavors are also extremely clean and lighter in body. Curries, peanut sauce, baba ganush and anything that plays off of the slightly honeyed volcanic flavors make this wine sing. " Winery Notes
