Hárslevelű

Somlói

Fekete Pince Olaszrizling 2013

100% Hárslevelű from Hungary’s Somló region. Deep gold color showing the age. Wet hay and dried apricot nose with honey undertone. Also reminds me of the sweet burnt caramel aromas of creme brûlée. On the palate sweet tropical fruit acidity (mango, pineapple), mineral and earth throughout. Heavy weight and plenty of texture puts this in the same league as some of the best Burgundy whites. From @sommselect dot com: This wine is farmed and crafted by Fekete Béla who is a 90-something-year-old unsung magician that turned a few acres of an ancient volcanic hillside terroir into thought-provoking wines with fathomless depth. It really is the work of a magician. — 4 months ago

9.0

On the nose; lemon, grapefruit, light petro, wet wool, smokey notes, saline and white & yellow lilies. The body is creamy. Notes of; smoke, saline, lemon & lime juice inferior melon, mix of ripe & underripe pineapple, light honey notes, soft, silty volcanic minerals, dry top soil dust, big round acidity with a round fruity mineral driven finish. Pair with simple meats, veggies, curry and dry cheeses, green salad. Producer notes...the winery is located in the village of Olaszliska just north of the village of Tokaj near the banks of the famous Bodrog River. Samuel farms roughly 5 hectares in this area (Határi vineyard) and an additional couple of hectares on the slopes of Mt. Tokaj. The soils on Határi are volcanic based (tuffa, obsidian), broken up limestone and clay. Most of their plantings are 90% Furmint and 10 % Hárslevelű...some as old as 90 years. They are mostly organic as no herbicides or pesticides are used. Grapes are pressed in a pneumatic press and fermentation is in Hungarian oak barrels. No new oak is used. Photos of; Samuel Tinon, the descent into their ancient cellars and resting Tokaj cellar bottles. — 2 years ago

Tornai

Premium Nagy-somlói Juhfark 2015

David T
8.9

This is the Tornai Juhfark Premium not the Pincezet. Perfumed lemons, beeswax and spring florals. The body is oily and waxy. Strong lemon, lime, underripe pineapple, melon, notes of honey and a nice strong presence of minerality sets in half way through. The wine has nice round high acidity with a round, lush finish. It definitely needs food yet still enjoyable on it's own on a hot day like today. Producer notes...the Tornai family has been winemaking since 1946 on Mt. Somló. Endre Tornai started making wine on only one ­acre vineyard. The family nows 56 acres. There planted varieties include; Juhfark, Furmint, Hárslevelű, Olaszrizling, Korona, and Sárfehér. They are located on Mt. Somló and the soil is made of volcanic rocks, which gives their wines a good presence of minerality. — 2 years ago

Tokaj Hárslevelű 2005

Somewhere between a dry Riesling and a Sauternes, the color looks a bit like urine and the initial smell carries some funk. The flavor is balanced and smooth throughout. This is a memorable wine and amazing for a Friday night at home with your lover, cooking dinner together and escaping the harshness of the world. *swoon* 😘 — 9 months ago

Narancsbor 2015

The wine in the picture is an orange wine and this vintage is actually not a furmint but hárslevelű. Narancsbor in Hungarian means orange wine that is it is macerated in contact with the grape skins and hence it becomes an orange color. This vintage (2015) is not as strong as the 2011 (which was really furmint) was. It is rather fruity but for my taste the acidity is a bit lower than expected. — 2 years ago

Szent Tamás

Teleki Tokaji Késői Szüretelésű Hárslevelu 2012

I suspect, giving this wine's lushness, this is Hárslevelű or a blend of Furmint and Hárslevelű. Lemon yellow in the glass with opulent notes of apricot and ripe mango, honeysuckle and a classic Botrytised nose. It's full and viscous on the palate, with plump apricot at the core followed by cardamom and Seville orange marmalade. The minerality is not as pronounced as in some of the Szent Tamás’ vineyard designate wines, there is, however a lovely vein of acidity to keep richness in check. Sample — 3 years ago
