2019 Balaton Furmint/Riesling, Weingut Moric
Roland Moric is best known as the greatest producer of Blaufrankisch, in Austria’s Burgenland region. But this is his other project, dubbed ‘Hidden Treasures’, and crafted alongside Villa Tolnay just across the border in Hungary. The Lake Balaton region of Hungary was once highly prized for the quality of its wines, but phylloxera, World Wars, and communism all destroyed demand for this historic wine region. Roland is trying to put it back in the spotlight, and with wines like this, you can understand why. A blend of mostly Riesling with a little Furmint, it’s dry, crisp, focused, savoury, and utterly delicious. A real bargain.
