video review: wine of the week

21st March 2010

Hilltop, Cserszegi Fuszeres 2008, Hungary
The name may be close to unpronounceable, but Hungary's Cserszegi Fuszeres grape (a cross between Irsai Oliver and Gewürztraminer) has made a beautifully fresh and aromatic white that is worth seeking out. The nose is filled with clear, floral-tinged fruit that has hints of exotic lychee, but is crisp and appetising. On the palate the wine has a bit of texture and weight, and a palate flooded with fruit reminiscent of passionfruit and really ripe, juicy pears. With fine acidity and just a hint of spice, this will make for delightful spring and summer drinking at a very modest price. £3.89, Morrisons.
