A contribution by wine writer and photographer Kevin Day who just published A First Taste Guide To Hárslevelü.

The 2013 Csendes Dülö Szölöbirtok Hárslevelü was his first taste of the Hárslevelü grape:

Not knowing my Szölöbirtok from my Hárslevelü, I twisted the cap and poured a glass with delightful bewilderment. Such is the fun of being an adventurous wine drinker.

Here is his tasting note:

Pale yellow-green color. Lovely and inviting nose that recalls lime zest as well as green apple, underripe pineapple rind and a general springtime scent of freshness and floral aromatics. Comes across as a bit spicy and peppery on the palate, giving the wine a distinct edge. Roaring acidity that makes it exceptionally food-friendly. Tingling sensation on the finish.
