Hilltop, Cserszegi Fuszeres 2008, Hungary
The name may be close to unpronounceable, but Hungary’s Cserszegi Fuszeres grape (a cross between Irsai Oliver and Gewurztraminer) 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.
