Megyer, Chardonnay, Tokaji, Hungary, 2009

This has been one of our wines of the year! We picked up a parcel of 200 bottles and we now have 11 bottles left that we originally reserved for a customer who never came back to pick them up. It's a fat wine and unlike anything I have ever tasted before. Slightly honeyed, nutty and with tropical fruits poking through. It's nearing the end of it's life but if you are a fan of big oaky Chardonnay's this could well be a super pick for you.

Chateau Megyer winery is situated in the picturesque region of Tokaji-Hegyalja close to the Zemplen forest where Hungarian oak is grown for barrel making. The vineyards were first planted by Count Ferenc Dobó in 1576! And in 1737 was classified as Grand Cru by Royal Decree.

The winemaking facilities are located at the Sárospatak Castle, the largest and best-preserved Renaissance castle in Hungary. The vineyard has a south and southwest aspect and is close to one of the two rivers that dissect the region, the Bodrog. Being close to the Bodrog the microclimate is a couple of degrees cooler than in the valley.

Chardonnay is actually not one of the 6 grapes allowed to carry the label of Tokaji hence the name 'Zempleni Chardonnay’. 13 years old and this wine is full of tertiary flavours that come about from time ageing.

This wine isn’t for those who are looking for a fresh clean wine with acidity this is all about tertiary flavours and shows incredible complexity honey, marmalade, raisins, and oak:-  just a few of the flavours I found when tasting this wine for the first time.
