This gift from a family friend, vintage 2008, is an off-dry, well-structred Riesling from Slovakia - Hungary's neighbour to the north.
It presents a lot of Riesling's great aroma virtues, like honey, lemon, the distinctive petrol, and minerality. Unfortunately these are accompanied by somewhat of an off earthy-cheeserind aroma. Very fresh on the palate with all positive aromas carrying through, and a mellow, almost chardonnay-like buttery flavour coming through. Very well balanced, structured, and quite nice.
Will have me taking another look at the all too under-exposed wine regions of Slovakia.
