2017 Hidden Treasures NR3, Lake Balaton, Hungary


Hidden Treasures is a collaboration between the formidable Roland Velich from southern Austria and his Hungarian counterpart Attila Hommona, from vineyards on the north shore of Lake Balaton on the Pannonian Plain, once home to some of the world's most precious wines but since decimated by war, communism, and phylloxera. Equal parts Riesling and Furmint, fermented in stainless and neutral barrel, the wine is dry, complex and possesses uncommon nerve. Fascinating.

From the cellar at Gwen.
