Made from the Juhfark grape on the Somlo hill near Lake Balaton in Hungary.  Silvery green/gold in color.  The nose has pears, smoke (it is grown in volcanic soil), slight soapy note and an herbal note.  On the palate, this is semi-sweet with apples and honey notes.  It  has a tart green apple streak on the finish.  This improved with air and definitely needs some food to counter the acidic bite.  Drink over the next five years.  It worked well with soft cheeses and will work with most lighter foods.
