6x Chateau Megyer Hárslevelű
Chateau Megyer is located in the Tokaji producing region in north-eastern Hungary at the foothills of the Zemplen mountains. The chalky soils and old-fashioned, small-scale methods of production give this wine unique notes with an exotic style and texture.
Hárslevelű (pronouned Harsh-level-loo, meaning linden-leaf in Hungarian) is still widely unknown, but is most commonly recognised as the variety added to the sweet Tokaji wine to balance the sweetness, bring floral aromas and richness to the blend. On it’s own it produces a dry wine with honeyed, herbaceous and slightly smokey characteristics and, as its name suggests, linden-like aromas as it ages. The Hárslevelű could easily stand up to a high quality unoaked Chardonnay.
2013 was a hot dry year in Hungary, producing dry white wines with good acidity and a slightly higher alcohol. This Chateau Megyer Hárslevelű is a fresh and harmonious dry wine with honey flower aromas. The small family production means the Hárslevelű is produced in extremely limited quantities.
It is recommended to serve with chicken or veal and with indian or asian spiced food. It can be drank as an aperitif, and opened now or aged for up to 5 years, but this is not necessary.
