Hungary

I was naturally sceptic of this wine. I had a favourite Hungarian wine that was under ten bucks. It inspired me to write about wines under a sawbuck.
That wine is no longer available and what was placed in its stead is bad. Simply bad.
I’ve had others and they were very underwhelming. I guess the Hungarian President has mucked around and destroyed the Hungarian wine industry. But that’s a different subject.
This wine is passable. It is sweeter than I like – it is rated as a medium, but it has a bit of a bitter aftertaste. I tried to temper this with something salty, it didn’t work to well. Something sweet also did not take the edge off.
It has the aura of an inexpensive wine. Even an inexperienced wine drinker will recognize that this wine is not made to be savoured but to be gulped and not thought about much.
