This is a very interesting wine made from 56% Hárslevelű and 44% Furmint organic grapes.  The vineyard, Lishegy dates back to at least 1686.  The wine was aged for 12 months in 500L Hungarian oak barrels.  2007 is a recent release.  It is a dry wine with 12.1% abv.  Golden in color, clear and bright.  The nose has apricots and minerals and what might best be described as a "woody" scent.  Not quite oak.  There is also a very slight diesel note.  On the palate, this has tart quince with some limes.  A viscous texture.  Dry.  Long finish.  A very interesting wine that improved great with some cheese.  This would work well with spicy foods too.  Given its age already, it is unclear how long it will last but three to five years seems safe.
