Gedeon Cserszegi Fűszeres 2010

A relatively new producer on my radar screen, working on the Plains, possible home of the great value base wines for Hungary. More and more people are making better, and very reasonably priced wines down there. A few weeks ago their pretty basic Gedeon Kadarka 2009 stole the show from a lot of overripe prestige-kadarkas. It was actually one of the few nice ones on show that evening. Cserszegi Fűszeres is one of the local aromatic grape varieties, producing simple, but very popular wines for summer consumption, like Moscato di Asti, Wachau Gelber Muskateller, or Sauvignon Blanc.

Deep lemon hue, with a refreshing, aromatic nose of grapes, cherries, apples, plums, and a vegetal touch. A very reasonable wine for a difficult vintage.

Acidity dominates on the palate, fortunately they are pretty ripe and round, no sharp edges anywhere. Grape and citrus fruits dominate, alcohol is low, and has a hard job to withhold the acids of the vintage. Still, it is a good wine, enjoyable for the aromatic grapes in a cold vintage – at 81 points, and 990 HUF at Bortársaság a value wine for the summer. I have already had some much more simple, and harsher wines for the vintage. From bigger names, too.

  1. Aquarell szállóban töltöttünk pár napos élmény fürdőzéssel egybekötött napot. Csupa fiatal felszolgáló de balatoni borokat kínált. Kérdeztem miért nincs Cegléd környéki boruk? Felséges.
