Hot on the heels of the fabulous Szentesi, I’ve been lucky enough to bump into another brilliant Hungarian Kadarka, this time from Orsolya. This is such an interesting variety, I’ll be looking out for more.
Orsolya Kadarka 2009 Egri Borvidek, Hungary
12.5% alcohol. Pale cherry red colour. Lovely sweet cherry fruit aromatics with some fine, spicy, herby notes. The palate is fresh and cherryish with real elegance and a sappy, green note. Very Burgundian in style: vivid, full flavoured and elegany with just a hint of undergrowth character and lively acidity. 93/100
