Laposa 4Hegy Olaszrizling 2017

HungaryFrom four different mountainous regions (Badacsony, Csobánc, Somló and Szent György) this olaszrizling (welshriesling) was 60 percent oak fermented, but in super giant oak (10000L). This basalt-driven white opens with a potent, petrol-slicked nose before darting into lightly perfumed pear, peach blossom and ginger which lingers on the super stony, salty finish. Bright grapefruit acidity slices through the subtle white and yellow perfumes, leaving an impression of tautness and grip. Very interesting.Tasted: 11 January 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: Hungary 7.50 Hungary Producer: LaposaVarietal: Welshriesling / Olaszrizling
