2013 Cserszegi Fuszeres, Frittmann

2013 Cserszegi Fuszeres, Frittmann
ref. FRIT130 DEC14
On Sale

Wine Variety: This cultivar was created in the early 1960s from a crossing of Irsai Oliver and Savagnin Rose. It was created in the Pannon University of Agriculture in Hungary and has remained within that country's borders despite its evident qualities. Must be something to do with that mouthful of a name: Fuszeres is Hungarian for "spicy", the Cserszegi bit comes from the name of a village. It was first commercialised in the early 1980s. Odd one this but, apparently, bunches of Cserszegi Fuszeres often contain reddish, as well as green, berries. 

Wine Region: Hungary is split by the Danube from north to south in roughly equal measures. The Great Plain lies to the east of the Danube and south of Budapest. Pretty much half the country's vineyards are to be found here planted in sandy soils that were first exploited following phylloxera as the louse cannot live in sand. In general terms, The Great Plain is a producer of fairly ordinary wine.

Wine Producer: Generations of the Frittmann family have produced wines here in The Great Plain. In 2007 Janos Frittmann won Winemaker of the Year.

wine tasting notesTasting Notes:

The nose here is lovely and richly aromatic. The aromas have real sucrosity, and offer herbal-inflected rhubarb scents. Palate is crisp and displays fine, crystalline, mineral freshness. Acidity is green and bold and the considerable length hemmed in by rocky grip. And I find a sneaky bitterness about the finish that adds to the sensation of freshness.
