This wine comes from Mór, is an undiscovered region, which is little known outside of Hungary. The region is located between Budapest and Neszmély, between the Vértes and the Bakony hills. It’s one of the smaller regions—just 650 hectares—and it produces exclusively white wines. The flagship variety here, and the most widely planted grape, is the indigenous Ezerjó—which makes a dry wine with both high alcohol and acid contents. Its name can be roughly translated as ‘a thousand blessings or good things’. The Csetvei Winery is a small family affair, founded in 2010. Founded in 2010. They have 3.5 hectares of vineyards in Mor, and one hectare in Somlo. According winemaker Krisztina Csetvei, Ezerjó is not as easy variety to work with, since it’s sensitive, thin-skinned, and difficult to handle. She experimented a lot with different styles of Ezerjó, and this one, which was spontaneously fermented and matured in a clay amphora, is a uniquely delicious take on this grape. The amphora has given this wine more complexity than Ezerjó typically has. This is a lively wine, with a bit of sweet spiciness, flowers, and a surprising amount of fruitiness—tropical fruit (pineapple and lychee), citrus (grapefruit and lemon), flowers, and apple. It’s a smooth and balanced wine, with a lively acidity. This is a great food wine. Try it with seafood or charcuterie, or with Middle Eastern or Indian dishes with lots of spice.
